What Days does J780 run to Mitchell to Switch the Cement Plant. Has there been any up dates on how many Cars that they will be getting?

J780 runs to Mitchel 3 times a week I believe.  Cement plant currently produces 800,000 tons of cement per year. No inbound, ships outbound cement. Expansion is increasing plant to 2,800,000 ton per year, increase of 350%.  Logic would dictate that traffic could increase by 350% as well.  Keep in mind, new plant is not expected to go on line before September 2022 and not go into full production until 1st quarter 2023, so traffic increase 2 or so years away.
The opinions, views, and incoherent ramblings presented here do not necessarily represent the view point of any company I work for or own,  any logical thinking being, or even me.
