        problem that should be corrected in a few days.

 1740 - 39G given instructions to pull through Oley toward Center, drop the conductor off
        at the west end of Center, and uncouple the trailing two (of five) engines leaving
        the entire train between Center and through Walnut. The front three engines will
        then go into track 3 and double to 4 to make the pick up. Train will then be
        assembled with the two engines becoming the mid-train DPUs. But as the train was
        pulling through Walnut and approaching Center the H31 which had just passed through
        Center called the dispatcher to report that a tractor-trailer was stuck under the
        bridge between Center and Walnut. 39G had pulled out the first track and was told to
        stop and reverse back to clear crossings. Local PD was also reported at the scene.
        Train was walked across bridge and was in yard area for several hours.
