I saw that tonight also, won't move much traffic from there! 2104 was switching Lowell around 12:30 today. Looks like some of those UP hoppers are back at Ann Street, possibly with some new ones.

MQT Z151 swapped out GR 2104 for MQT 2043 last night. 2104 will be going to Manistee for some repairs.
