From the Associated Press via the Grand Junction Free Press:

The first trainload departed on Monday. Don Metzler, project director for DOE, says the system is expected to be fully operational after a ribbon-cutting ceremony early next month. After May 4, a train with 88 containers full of the sludge will depart in the evenings Monday through Thursday. This summer, train shipments are planned to increase to seven days a week.
