After leading NS 14M to Buffalo yesterday, #1974 aka the Lackawanna unit led NS 36T today. The train is currently tied down in Horseheads (perhaps a mile from the former DL&W ROW), due a derailment in Conklin Yard.

We've got a double dose of Heritage units on the Tier today:

1. The Savannna & Atlanta unit #1065 is leading NS 36T. The train was spotted in Owego about 40 minutes ago.

2. Not sure if the specially painted DC to AC units truly count, but #4002 is the 2nd unit of on NS 23K. that train was spotted at Gang Mills around 3:30 PM so #4002 might already have gotten to Buffalo.

The Monogahela unit is leading NS 28N today. The train was spotted in Buffalo at 6:49 AM (as per the HU website), so I'm guessing #8025 is on the Tier now

The PC unit is trailing on NS 309 this evening. The train was spotted in Elmira around 4:45 PM. Given the stop at Gang Mills, I'm guessing #1073 hasn't gotten to Bison yard yet.

There are 2 heritage units in Bison Yard as of early this morning. The Veterans unit #6920 came into greater Buffalo as the lead unit on NS 14M. The Pennsy unit #8102 arrived as the trailing unit arrived as the trailing unit on NS 309.

The Jersey Central unit is leading NS 28N. The train was spotted at Brocton around 2 AM, so I suspect #1071 is on the Tier now.

The Lehigh Valley unit is trailing on NS 28N. The train was spotted in Ohio last night, so I expect #8104 will be on the Tier during daylight today.

LV unit is not in the lead, it is the 2nd unit.
