Getting dark but two tracks full of hoppers at least in Lowell and at 5:00pm, Ann Street still had two tracks full of hoppers in the yard.

Man... sounds like this might be Kings' biggest rush of cars to date? I can't imagine 60 cars in the yard, that's crazy.

Good to see that the GRE, although small has a big customer that is clearly in it for the long run.
