CSX traffic in Homestead FL

I was down in Homestead today and came across the ex-Seaboard line there. It seemed largely overgrown, more than I've seen in the past. What kind of schedule frequency does CSX maintain in there these days? I'm aware they've been trying to abandon (or sell off) this branch for probably 25 years. Although the northern portion of the Homestead branch is kept in fine shape to service rock quarries, the rest of the line (south of the MetroZoo/Gold Coast RR Museum) has been only marginally maintained. Thanks for all replies.
