Notable Events:
22V called the signal at CP Wyomissing just before the detector at Sinking Spring announced!  That's quite a long train.

At 0645 The 18.8 detector in Topton was heard!

94M went to Womelsdorf siding to pick up crippled (leaning) three-well stack car that was dropped by the 25Z.
 They were unable to bring it east and so moved it to a better location on the siding for the repair.

MOW crew pulling up macadam at the Third St crossing (CP Center).  Unclear if the crossing is being replaced or removed.
