GRE --- EB Leonard at 8:58 lite. Looks like the 22 cars they brought back earlier this week are still in the yard, plus an empty centerbeam added to the end.

Looks like around 50 cars in the GRE Ann Street yard tonight. The line keeps growing, including one box car at the southern end, not sure who that was for. Not sure if these are all for CSX or Grand Elk or both.

Not for Standard. I suspect it's misplaced. It shows as a load but the GRE is putting empties on the cut. I can determine it originated in Tuttle CA :)
