They haven't been running daily for some time now. Which way is it facing? They'll probably run tomorrow, or if it is northbound, it may not even run until Monday.

A lot of BNSF hoppers around Lowell on several tracks. Wheat trucks are starting to roll in to King, but the rail cars are not letting up.
