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.

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.
