RCP&E Belle Fourche - Rapid City - Chadron questions

Postby frankgaron2 » Wed May 17, 2017 7:43 pm

Hi All:

I'll also be in SD first week of June & want to shoot as much RCP&E as I can get.

Is the Belle Fourche - Rapid City turn still usually a reliable bet in the early to mid morning?

How often & when does the Chadron job run?

Any intel would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Frank

Was up in RC a couple years ago. Back then the Belle Fourche job departed BF early A.M., after daybreak about 7:00 A.M. or so. This job turned around in RC and went back north mid-late afternoon.

Seems the Chadron run was a night job.
