Stopped by the Plop spot for the first time in 2017 long enough to watch four trains.

Tough for me to answer. For me it is a matter of luck. I have been there when I have seen ten trains in four or five hours and five or six in a couple of hours. Then those times you can not find a train no matter how long you are there. Mid day is usually the worse time to be there for me seeing a train. In a twenty four hour period I would have no idea.

Saw these three in an hour and a half Sunday from 2 to 3:30 pm while on my way to and from the library.
