There are no real heritage units. They were photoshopped, and the whole roundhouse thing was faked with 1/4 size models on a sound stage. Doesn't count until I see one, and I live on CSX tracks, so even if they were real, I'd never get to see one.</jealousy>

NS 1073 (Penn Central) passed my quarters in Topton going east about 10 hours ago; we get about thirty moves a day through here, but that's my only NS sighting to date.

Actually, it;s probably easier to catch the CP units in D&H paint at my "second home" along the former PRR Sunbury Line, since the D&H units seem to stay close to their would-be home rails.

Today, the Walbash Unit was on the H-74 Local along with a Union Pacific unit on the Portland Secondary. I saw it as it went through Phillipsburg NJ.

I saw the Conrail engine yesterday while working at NS 55 Yard in Chicago, it came out of the 51 side of the yard and went downtown to Union Station for National Train Day
