There were six hoppers on the loop track at CHS in Wayland this morning. First time I've seen anything on those tracks from 131.

As of noon, GRE was switching at Ada. Had a lot of switching around to do on the run-around to get their tank car down the hill to Amway. Many cars to take to Lowell still.

MQT 151 at 10 mile. Sounds southbound. Also sounds like 3406 leading.
