FWIW, the GRE and MS are now going to 4 days per week operations. No MS trains on Tuesdays and no GRE on Thursdays, respectively.

Thanks. I almost headed out after I saw your post, was thinking of shooting them from Ada to Lowell. Gotta figure they just went to Ada, dropped their cars and went back west lite.

GRE went east to Lowell early with a few hoppers (around 9:00-9:30am). Headed west with a long train of empties (didn't count them), including at least 2 tanks from AMWAY.
