Freshly painted 2104 is parked in Lowell tonight, probably until the Turner Ave. crossing is open in GR. Made my trip to Burger King a ;little longer than expected!

Saw what appeared to be the Ann Arbor orange unit alongside two generic blue-and-white locos at the Ann Arbor's main yard in Toledo at 1014 EDT.

The Turner Ave. GRE crossing in GR is open and much nicer. Easier on my struts! A lot of cars (AMWAY and King) in the Ann Street yard, I assume EB for Lowell tomorrow.
