Remarks & Notes 
Got IT! Conrail Block Operator Jim Largent has successfully conveyed a Form D to Conrail conductor Mike Quigley at Derry Road in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The Form D authority would take the ALPI-0 train from #1 to #2 track - reverse direction under Rule 251 - from Derry Road to CP-Tara at Hummelstown to accommodate maintenance. The image here shows the moment of reception at speed with the conductor firmly grasping the string with the attached Form D.
