No cars at King in Lowell tonight, but looked a line of AMWAY and King hoppers at the Ann Street yard, probably for Monday. Earlier, it looked like King was holding some sort of ceremony at the new Flour Bagging plant. There is a rail siding near it, but not sure if they intend to use rail.

I've since been told that they now store extra hoppers for Petoskey plastics at Mancelona. False alarm!
