At GRE in Grand rapids. Not seeing ant activity. No crew truck, only a few cars in the interchange, and 1 car in the yard, very dead.
On ride back home, no activity from MQT, GDLK, or CSX in grand rapids.. ohs well, good ride anyway.

Marquette SB at Ann St., while GRE was getting their EB train ready around 12:45 pm. Yard is kind of full, mostly AEX hoppers. MQT had ~20 hoppers and tanks are in the first half, ~25 boxcars in the second half of the train; 3 locomotives. Too far back to get the numbers.
