The IT unit #1072 is leading NS 310. The train is currently in Bison Yard and will head east on the Tier this afternoon.

After it came through as a DPU on 310 on Friday, I've been told that the Conrail unit is leading 309 back west on the Tier today and is called to depart East Binghamton yard at 10:20am

The Southern unit is leading NS 310 today. The train just changed crews in Depew a short time ago, so #8099 will make a daylight run on the Tier today.

The Ere unit is home again! She is DPU on NS 310 today. The crew goes OD in greater Buffalo @ 11 AM, so #1068 will be on the Tier this afternoon.

Also, the CR unit was the 2nd unit on NS 22K yesterday. Number 8098 should return on NS 23K in a day or two.

Update: the Erie unit is leading NS 310. There had been conflicting reports about whether #1068 was leading or DPU, but photos there finally settled the debate.

NS 310 has the PRR unit as the trailing head-end power. The train just left Broadway in greater Buffalo, so #8102 should be on the Tier soon.
