LS&I Operations:  Everyday, the LS&I goes on duty with the 7-weigher and usually heads to the mine at 7:00 a.m.  The first train goes out and heads to Partridge roughly around 10:00 a.m., and goes back to the mine and brings the 2nd cut out about 1:00 p.m.  (Note:  This schedule is not always accurate but a close estimate).  After the 2nd cut arrives at Partridge, they go back to Eagle Mills light. 

The CN SORE-1 train generally arrives at Partridge about 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and heads directly to Eagle Mills with 70 3-bay hoppers and extra freight when needed.  After dropping off at Eagle Mills, they pick up Queens (if needed) and head to Partridge to get the 70 3-bay hoppers that the LS&I filled and delivered that morning.  If things go smoothly, they leave south around 3:00 p.m.
