In Kingston at the railroad's Cornell Street Yard, crews began the relocation of the storage siding's stub switch to permit access to the track through an east facing, full turnout. The completed siding and new switch will provide both storage for the coaches presently at Route 209 and allow for efficient switching of MOW equipment in the yard. The W110B tamper received some routine maintenance and repairs to the exhaust system were begun. Participating today were Earl Pardini, Ernie Klopping, Walt Otto, Jim Bruck, Will Wilsey, Russell Nelson, George Peck, and Mark Glaser.
