MQT Z151 South at Alpine, sounds like 3408 leading.

Per a field report, GRE gave a car to Coopersville and Marne, then put their engine back in the shed at Fuller, so no trip towards Lowell today.

Grand Elk headed SB at 54th St. @ 9:00am, backwards, while watching my granddaughter. 2 locomotives and 2 or 3 coil steel cars (for Magic) and one lumber. Dropped off the lumber car at whatever they call the lumber yard along Clay Ave., then returned north about 45 minutes later.

No cars in Lowell since Friday. I assume more are in transit somewhere. 10 or 12 in the yard on Ann St.
