GRE WB across the Grand River around 2:30pm. This morning there was a line of King hoppers near the AMWAY spur. Around 5:00pm, there was a line of hoppers on the E/W siding along the mainline, east of Hudson/Segwun, S.O. Lowell (3 looked like they could be AMWAY cars) and two tracks of hoppers in Lowell near King.

1 hopper and 2 tanks along the AMWAY spur tonight. Too cold to check King Milling, but I know they went east today and the Ann Street yard is not as full as it was with loads.
