TC Run today. I tried catching the train in Kingsley and was exactly 7 seconds late for it.
If you see a little grey Subaru at the tracks, it’s me.

The crossing on Garfield Road just North of Kingsley is currently malfunctioning and is impassable. Funnily enough, it’s next to the bus garage, and the buses can’t get around it. Might cause problems later on.
