Just based on your times, I'd think they dropped off the 10 covered hoppers in Ada, then came back for more at Ann St, combine the trains at Ada and head for Lowell. Raildude's dad mentioned that Ann St yard was full of Kings on Friday.
That would make sense, there was only 1 car in Lowell on Saturday when I passed through.

Michigan Shore is fueling up 2 locomotives at north yard. Apparently HESR 2025 arrived in muskegon at some point. I don't remember seeing it last week at all.

Hearing what I think is Grand Elk going south out of Grand Rapids crossing 36th St. Unknown if just local or road train.

2025 was at Ensel Yard a couple weeks ago. Forgot to mention it when I came back.


GDLK 302 is sitting SB at Cowling right now with 4225 and 4206. Relatively short train today, not more than 40 or 50 cars. Doesn’t look like they’re waiting for anyone either, no sign of a crew.
Amtrak's here to stay. Deal with it.

Thursday night GDLK put 3 loads at the bottom of a whole bunch of King empties on the interchange track and didn't take them. Still didn't take them this morning :(. GRE didn't work today. Mexican standoff I guess. The one interchange track is still out of service. :(
