With the nicer fall weather, I've been wanting to catch the train. But do understand the railroad aspect that it runs when Conrail/the crew is ready. From a railfan perspective, it's been hard lately to judge what day I'd need to take off from work to catch it.
Also, fyi, a flying switch maneuver is performed on a facing point switch for the crew which would not be the case on the return run for Brick Recycling. So no "flying" in this scenario. Plus...their switch is at the crest of a small grade (if they tried a flying maneuver southbound) and that would require balls of steel to attempt and complete.
