Sounds like GDLK is at 32nd St in Grand Rapids as of 11:05am. Unknown if north or southbound.
admin edit: likely heard GDLK working the Hastings lead at Great Lakes Gypsum & Supply (L&W Supply) as they received their first car on this spur into SE Grand Rapids in years. They are located on Roger B Chaffee Blvd between 32nd and 36th St in Grand Rapids.

Marquette has the TPW 4056 leading three SD40-2 southbound at Newaygo 3:40. They doubled the hill out of Newaygo. This is the second trip up the hill.

GRE came into GR at about 3 pm on Monday. Bout 6-10 car train if I was hearing correct.
Z151 currently NB in GR by the sounds of it.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.

**HEADS UP**

Grand Elk will be picking up the empty car from the new industry on the Hastings Lead that was delivered yesterday. Not sure on the time, but hopefully someone can catch the move.

Lowell has been empty fro a few days and the yard on Ann St. The Ann Street yard now has probably 20 hoppers for King and a few for AMWAY. GRE will probably head east tomorrow. I hope it doesn't slow down construction on Hudson!

OK I was wrong. Hoppers are still in the Ann Street yard. KCRC did a nice job on Hudson, S.O. M-21, in Lowell and finished early. (I posted this on the CSX thread incorrectly!)

Lame update, but no GRE spotted in downtown GR at 8:45am, and the L&W business on Roger B Chaffee in GR has no car spotted at the business.
