G & W doing track work today at the Ann Street (Fuller) yard. Looks like two tracks full of King hoppers and one track with Amway cars, including that short ballast hopper that's been around a couple weeks now.

Looks like a line of 10 or so new, graffiti free, UP hoppers at King in Lowell today. Must have come in on Friday, I saw the GRE return to GR on Friday with 9 or 10 empties. The GRE Ann Street yard is still full.

UP car number or 2 and I can tell you where they came from:). The hopper of ballast is for a bridge approach - Grand River I think.
