One line of loads for King in Lowell and several individual hoppers on various tracks, and another line of hoppers (probably empties) on one of the sidings south of town. Looks like some track work going on near King also, still have new ties not used from last year.

Jackson and lansing south out of mason at 0802. Not sure if they're headed south to Jackson or just to service customers in Mason.

I'm guessing the GRE didn't go east today and will tomorrow?

Did you see what the power was?

I caught them northbound between Leslie & Mason about 07:10 with 1758, 1760 & a good sized train from Jackson. Then when I got to Mason at 07:30 the 1751 was headed south light, so something odd was going on.

Sorry no visual. I was delivering at capital steel, can't see the tracks from there. I was just going by the direction of horns.

GRE was switching in Lowell around 2:00pm today. Long line of what looked like empties, south of Lowell. Had to drive the wife somewhere, so I couldn't watch long. Later today, 6 loaded hoppers in Lowell. Looks like they are still doing track work by King.

West Michigan picked up 5 cars from CSX in Hartford last night and spotted 2 for loading.
