1: What is the symbol of the Hershey Shifter?
2: I saw a mixed manifest on the Lurgan Branch this morning around 09:30 with BNSF 9796 in the lead. Any idea what this train symbol could be? It was headed west with NS 8687 & NS 9916 trailing the BNSF SD70MAC.

Since you can get the info just listening to the radio....

Shifter: H2a

Freight: there are two trains out of enola that go to vardo, and one from allentown. I'm afraid I don't know which of the three it might have been

The train was the the 37Q. From what I was hearing the H2A kept calling themselves the Hersey shifter or just shifter over the radio. Thanks for the symbol though.

Rob is completely right. Thats my mistake, I appologise.. its been so long since I worked either job that I totally forgot. My last few months on the HBG Div were on the 214/11j turn or the 20Q for Morrisville.
