Yes, the TRRA ran two employee trains around each shift change (7a, 3p 11p).  First left Union Station going clock-wise around the TRRA, the Second train ran counter-clockwise. The second was known as the Relay Cab, the first was referred to as the Merchants Cab.

There is a good one page overview of this operation in the TRRAH&TS Issue 51-52 / Summer-Autumn 1999.
