Briggs road to the east of Quincy MI? Not too familiar with the roads that INE run on.

West Michigan left 3 empties for CSX at the interchange again in Hartford last night after doing some other switching. Hopefully D700 doesn't highball them again today!

Only 6 hoppers in Lowell this weekend, which I believe arrived on Friday. GRE ran 5 days to Lowell last week. On Friday, Grand Elk was switching the sand trans-load N.O. Ann Street, but left no new hoppers for King.

MQT sb at Turner about noon. It looked like they might switch Van's, I saw them switching near Quality Feed earlier. I also noticed the Harris Steel former Ambassador Steel facility looks vacant. No cars, no trailers, no rebar, no signage, gates locked.

I saw MQT in the same location around noon on Turner/WRD. Looked like a long train, 60 or more. I hope I didn't run you off the road counting! Lowell has most tracks full of hoppers again. Still new ties not installed yet around King.
