They had a rather large slug of grain hoppers for Kings when we went by at 11AM. Stretched from east of the diamond to Alpine Overhead. They were doing an airtest when we came back by at Noon. I didn't think that GP38 would take em all up and out of town. There was an empty centerbeam in the yard, I assume from Fruit Ridge and in the cut for Lowell way there was a covered hopper plastic bead car and a tanker for Amway. Lowell was empty of cars when I went by on Tuesday...cept for two at the unloader next to the new silos.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.

GRE appears to have gone to Lowell today. Hoppers all over town. Saw them moving around the Ann Street yard around lunch time. They move a loaded lumber car west to the Marsman siding for the C & M. It was dark but the yard still looked full around 6:30pm.

Thursday, MQT was parked N.O. Turner around 1:00pm. Looked like a long train, most of the distance back to N. Park. A lot of box cars on the back end; possibly 5 engines, but could not confirm without departing the roadway.

Empty potash cars from the cars I can read the numbers. One looked like a sand car but I can't read the number.
