Notable Events:
Actually heard the 46.9 detector at 00:20!

In the wee hours a logjam ensued as 16N went into emergency at signal 65 and 212 developed an oil leak at CP-Dorf.
 Several westbounds had to wait for two eastbounds running around the 16N. Several trains had recrews due to delays.

16N (key train - 3 engines & 120 cars) was brought through town knowing they had a 17' 1" high car which did set off
 the detector at Wyomissing.  The bridge height is 17' 2" on track 2 and 17' 10" on track 1.  The train was routed
 on track one from Wyomissing to Center and recrewed at Center.

19:30 - 62W couldn't run around train at H&K so they pulled the train onto the Turkey Path and ran around it
 the long way-- Cumru-Titus-Bird and back.

23:59 - 60N had been parked at Leisey since 15:30 with 9086. It was recrewed about 22:30 on the 8167/1052, which came
 out of Dyers to pick up train and will drop units off in Harrisburg.  Engines had to wait at Cumru for traffic to pass through.
