Notable Events:
KH03 at Sink ready to open up at 11:00 with tank cars for Spring Street.  Dispatcher informs them that there's a lot of traffic
 and CP Center is out of service for crossing maintenance so they would have to go in via Cumru/Titus.  Crew replies they are
 not qualified any other way.  Dispatcher says they will have to sit for a while.

H31 rundown-- Work at Elk, drill 2 cars at Farmer Boy (Myerstown), shift cars at Lebanon Seaboard, set out three at Rigiply,
 set out 3 at 7D, set out 1 at PPC, set out 1 at FM Brown's.

At 1922 the dispatcher called the 60N and informed him that a train ahead hit a tree at Reeses (Hershey) and he should
 watch out for debris.

Throughout the day radio traffic at Allentown Yard was heard (HA21, HA11 crews).
