Something went through at Division/Leonard GRE crossing around 10:00am today, but I missed it, still no hoppers in Lowell. Must have gone to Amway.

Still no hoppers tonight at Ann Street or Lowell. Maybe rerouted to Lowell, Mass. Around 5:30pm, MQT was parked north of Turner along WRD. 4 locomotives and 60 or 70 cars (dark and driving too fast).

For the first time in a long time ADBF GP9 #1760 was sighted on the JAIL at Lansing today, along with #1758. They were lite northbound but had 4 boxcars southbound at Michigan Ave. later in the morning.

Earlier in the afternoon, there were also 4 tanks and one loaded lumber car at the end of the line of cars west of Alpine. The GRE was moving out of the shed, but must have been switching the yard. There are no cars in Lowell yet.
