GRE - Traffic jam in the GRE yard this morning. Interchange track is full, and there is a string starting at the power shed running well to the west of Alpine. Spotted at least a couple of lumber loads.

Ine just pulled up to Briggs road in Quincy with 2 units long hood forward and a short train. By the time I got there their lights were off so I'm guessing they tied down there 1645

GRE WB at Plainfield with 2 hoppers around 4:00pm. I have not checked Lowell/King today, but it looks like there are still 10-12 hoppers in the Yard in GR.

CMPY 7014 was East though Marne around 1800 to grab lumber loads from the GRE. I counted at least two loads for them in the interchange yesterday.

At about 21:15 tonight, Grand Elk was northbound at 28th St in Wyoming. Not sure if it was 303 or the yard job.

Two tracks full of mostly King hoppers in the GRE yard this evening. Still have not installed the ties in Lowell yet, but I did not check tonight. Some discussion about reconfiguring the tracks in Lowell to accommodate more King expansions.

I was told the traveling track gang works 14 days on -14 days off. Maybe this is a travel home day for them. Those kings have been in the yard for a few days.
