Since GLC has been going to TC on Saturday lately and the north yard has loads could there be a run tomorrow to TC? :|

This probably should go on December but I'll let someone else start it. While driving up 127 yesterday I see they have a letter board out warning the road east of the soy bean plant will be closed starting tomorrow. I want to say its bagley road. That may or may not be related to something glc is doing but with all the track work right there this week I'm guessing maybe something needs repaired in the crossing.
