Grand Elk SB at Ann Street in GR around noon today. 2 locomotives, long hood forward (3531 & 3534) and about 30 load sand hoppers. I will check Lowell in a few minutes.

And still no cars in Lowell. A line of hoppers were shoved west of Alpine Ave. Not sure if they are loads or empties.

Grand Elk is headed south from Kalamazoo right now. Not sure who it is but I see a lot of those stubby little two-bay CHs. No more than 20 MPH.
Amtrak's here to stay. Deal with it.

No cars in Lowell yet, but two tracks are full of hoppers at Ann Street. Probably two trips east tomorrow for the GRE?

GRE was moving cars around the Ann Street yard just before noon, and head east after lunch again. In the dark, it looked like at least 30 cars around Lowell.
