GRE went east over the Grand River just before noon with 6 hoppers. Yard was fairly empty tonight. Will check Lowell when I head to Fry Daddy's in a few minutes.

A bit late, but last night West Michigan left 3 rubber loads for CSX and spotted 2 empties for loading in Hartford.

GRE was facing WB just east of Hudson/Segwun south of Lowell, with 3 hoppers. I did not see any King hoppers in the usual places round town. Too cold to look around! -16 on I-96 near M-66 around 8:30am.
