Looks like around 7 or 8 hoppers in Lowell today, probably brought in yesterday. I have heard no GRE today yet.

This is slightly outside Michigan but I dont see any general short line board. Indiana Northeastern has a unit with 2 mow gray flat cars and a small excavator on one if them tied down in the klink siding just east of i69 in Ashley indiana. 2000

Seems a little late. Don't they usually arrive /depart Durand mid to late afternoon?

That is what's supposed to happen, with the 701 getting as far north as they can before they go dead. Buuuut, there's always those long days where they die in Durand and just have 703 take over.

On another note, MMRR Alma crew was on duty at 0700. They took a Hemlock grain train off to Paines yesterday, hopefully LSRC picked it up, spotted 25 at the spout in Breckenridge to load, and have another private grain train out of Breckenridge that will (hopefully) be taken offline to Paines today.

5 or 6 empty center beams on the interchange track at Ann Street/GRE. also 2 tracks of BNSF hoppers. Not sure if some are the empties from earlier this week or loads for Monday. No cars in Lowell right now.
