A lot of covered hoppers in Lowell for King, plus another line of mostly NS hoopers south of town. Don’t see NS hoppers for King too often.

Get me a car number and I'll see where they came from. I saw them too yesterday on the way back from the Whites bridge project. Bridge is done :D , just waiting for the approach paving and some electrical.

C&M X7014 on duty in Coopersville. Looks like they’re doing some shuttling in the yard to rearrange some things then will be making the run to Standard to move the last empty for awhile at least to interchange.
