A bit late, but Grand Elk was south at 54th St in Grand Rapids at 9:30pm last night. Bit earlier than normal it seemed.

GRE - WB Leonard at 10:20 with 10 CHs from King. Didn't see them head east this morning, so perhaps the power spent the night in Lowell??

GRE spent the night in Lowell Thursday and is there again tonight, south of town with a line of hoppers on a different track. Also 2 tracks full of hoppers by King and looks like several more at Ann Street yet.

09:40 JAIL NB at MA in Lansing with two coils to set off for CSXT. They have ADBF 1751 for power, first time I’ve seen it since late July.

My so saw the GRE go west today around lunch time, then east with a couple cars for AMWAY. In Lowell, it looks like there are 3 or 4 concrete ties on the ground near King. Possibly for high-speed rail to Greenville??

Actually, I am not sure what they are. They looked a little too large for ties, unless they are going under multiple tracks and/or switches.

I debated checking out King this afternoon on my way to Whites Bridge but didn't. The contractor moved in yesterday to begin the construction of the new timber covered bridge.
