How many trains per day come through on the main line?  How about any action in this industrial park?  Google shows some tank cars:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=beltsville,+md&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=41.818029,87.890625&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Beltsville,+Prince+George%27s,+Maryland&ll=39.028394,-76.907923&spn=0.005026,0.010729&t=h&z=17

the tankers are switched by the what was the D781 out of Jessup - no clue what the run is now - i can ask my CSX pals.

here is the break down from the Pacer Farm

we found 72 scheduled movements passing Sunnyside MD on the CSX Capital Subdivision  on any day

CSX is replacing the crossing at Riverdale soon.  All the pieces are in place.  Guess they will be single tracking during this process.  Looks like a concrete crossing replacing the old one.  Don't know when they plan on starting.

That Pacer Farm list is very old and outdated as some of those train symbols have either been moved to other lines or changed names.

Besides the MARC trains scheduled from Baltimore to Washington Monday - Friday, here is a list of trains you might see. Note, some of these trains depending on day, might actually head West or come East to Baltimore via the Old Main Line and you won't see them in Beltsville.
