Westbound or eastbound, Scot?
LOL, Mr BR&P!!!

I don't have any strong feelings for or against the FEC unit. If someone wants to post the location, it certainly doesn't hurt anything. Perhaps this thread should be retitled to reflect heritage units and sightings of special interest?

Sorry, I have no updates on the Interstate unit. The HU website reported #8105 heading northbound in Clarks Summit last night, but nothing since then. Unless she melted from the heat, the "creamsicle" will eventually be sighted somewhere in upstate NY today, IMO.

Well, my guess was wrong. Nobody sighted the Interstate unit #8105 on the HU website while she was in NY. The "creamsicle" has already gone back to the Scanton/Wilkes Barre area on NS 11Z. Her sojourn in Bingo was brief.

The N&W unit #8103 is Binghamton and is sitting on the service track.

The Wabash unit is leading NS 310 today. The train was spotted in Buffalo a couple hours ago. The photo on the HU website appears to show #1070 entering SK Yard. Therefore, NS 310 will probably do some block swapping in greater Buffalo before heading down the Tier this afternoon.

NS 310, with the Wabash unit leading, passed through Dale about 90 minutes ago.

Maybe a bit OT but a Juan Trippe heritage unit is leading 23K west from Binghamton as I type: 46 year old antique SD40-2 MEC 3402.

The CNJ unit is returning to the Tier. She led NS 310 to Bison Yard overnight. There are no recent updates on FB or the HU website, so I am not sure where #1071 is right now.

The CNJ unit was spotted leading NS 310 through Owego a couple hours ago, so #1071 should be in Binghamton now.

The N&W unit is 2nd of 3 locos on NS 22K today. The train was spotted in Mentor, OH (east of Cleveland) around 2:30 PM. The train might get onto the west end of the Tier before dark.

NS 22K is tied down on the A&P siding in Horseheads, with N&W unit #8103 as the 2nd of 3 units. I do not know if the train stopped due to weather-related issues or for another reason.

The N&W unit is the 2nd of 3 locomotives on NS 23K today. The train was spotted in Binghamton earlier this morning, so #8103 is probably on the Tier now.

The Interstate unit #8105 is currently in Binghamton. She arrived there yesterday as the 2nd of 2 DPUs on NS 310.
