Anytime is train time!  One of the busier spots in the St. Louis metro area.  All trains must call Lenox Tower to the north.  Usually they use the following frequency; UP Springfield Sub: 160.560(30).

Amtrak scheduled trains (Times are for the Alton station. None stop in Mitchell):
#21/#22Texas Eagle: 2/day; WB 7:51pm/EB 10:51am. Approx. Schedule link

A&S has a small yard (Mitchell Yard) just south of Chain of Rocks Rd.  A lumber yard is also served here.  Trains move slow through here as they are approaching the end of the line for A&S and its junction with Lenox Tower where the KCS, UP Springfield and Pana subs, and NS come together.

Lenox Tower, inaccessible without trespassing, is at the end of the first side street off of Chain of Rocks Rd.
