Magnetation Trains

I still haven't caught a loaded Magnetation out on the Lakes Sub., but a few Saturdays ago I was able to catch Eagle Pass to Allouez empties on the Hinckley Sub. as some sun tried to burn through.  Interesting mix of newer BNSF ore cars and leased bath tub hoppers on these trains.  At least the leader added some color to my drive as I headed for the Twin Cities.
How often are they loading trains up in Coleraine now?  Once a week or more often?  I take it if the Indiana plant goes up as expected by 2014-2015 they will run a daily train that way instead of towards Mexico.
