How Popular is Steam?

A short note to share one piece of data that might help illustrate how popular the run of the 4449 through the area was.

Most days, the Staples Sub radio feed bounces between 0 and 5 listeners at any given time. I have seen it jump up to 8 or so a few times when something unusual was going on, but normally 3 or 4 people will be listening during evenings.

The following graph shows what the listenership was like during the time 4449 was plying the rails through central Minnesota.


The highest number I saw was 19 listeners. This is more than double what I remember ever having seen in the past.

Just, wow.
