Bienfait Coal Co.'s ex MILW EMD TR4a 5706 with 2 cars of coal fines used in making charcoal BBQ briquettes crosses the the CN Lampman Subdivision on its way to the CPR Yard. The mine, formerly the Manitoba and Saskatchewan Coal co. shipped unit trains to Atikokan Ontario and Brandon Manitoba until steam generation was discontinued in early 2000's by both Manitoba and Ontario. Mine still serves the mine mouth Shand Power plant near Estevan but little moves by rail anymore from the once very busy Souris River coal fields around Estevan
