Yes they did. Crew was switching at Ann St before 7A. There was a cut east of Alden Nash in Lowell from last week and they brought a cut from GR. The tracks west of Alden Nash to Fulton Street are full and King was unloading a couple at noon. GRE had gone west already.

Lowell has two tracks full of hoppers, including one line back almost to M-21. Still more loads in the Ann Street yard.

GDLK brought them more last night plus 3 for Standard. CPMY will be delivering 4 when they go west.

I saw the GRE EB along Grand River Dr. near Ada about 12:30. Looks like they left the King hoppers on the siding S.O. Lowell.

MQT Z151 southbound at Fuller @ 13:59. Sounded like 3389 was leading, hence the Nathan horn.
