They haven’t gone north by the property or through Kingsley in a while. Track work downstate have something to do with that?
I live in Kingsley and film trains & crossings.

Doubt it- nothing for TC means no trips. There are 6 gons at Beacon, looks like 2 loaded and ready...So depends on when Beacon releases those I suppose. And of course at for Amerhart, depends on when loads come up for them...

GLC MOW has South Airport (the crossing on the Grawn branch) all tied up with a massive traffic jam and fender benders. They have a traffic shift (5 lanes down to a couple at the moment) whole they work on the crossing all day today.
