5 freights in 2 hours sounds pretty good! Would you recommend a visit there?
I'd definately recommend a visit to Holytown as it is usually busy most of the day and although there was the 5 freights running, another 3 that usually pass through during that time didn't run, these were the Alcans, Cement and another Coal working.

there is some info on the location here

Yep. Worth a few hours in the afternoon... Go up a few times during the week here and there. Heading up again on Thursday when out mileage bashing. Like to head there then take a bash about at tea time before heading down to Carluke to catch the freightliner and drs then get 380 back to Central (ex Nth Berwick)...

the best time to go to Holytown is probably around 2.30 - 5.30 as most freight passes then.
