Re: Great Lakes Central Updates: March 2019

Been a week or so since a train was in Middleton. There are fertilizer empties for pickup,MAC was moving a ground pile all week into their silos. Wouldn't be surprised if a unit train was coming soon,I'll try to give a heads up if they do.

MDOT is closing that intersection for good do to the number of fatal accidents over the year's there. Bagley will become a dead end road off Washington,and a culder sack will be constructed there in the spring.

Cargill is fully operational and receives several cars a week. Every time I go by they have at least 6-10 cars on their spur,and the north end switch is right at the King St. crossing.
