The GoRail unit #6963 is trailing on NS 37T. According to at least one FB report, the train was spotted at Waverly earlier this morning.

P.S. I know the GoRail unit is not a true heritage unit, but it is tracked on the HU website and IMO does fall under the umbrella of special locomotive sightings.

The Interstate unit is leading NS 28N today. The "Creamsicle" was spotted in North East, PA a little over 2 hours ago, so #8105 should be on the Tier this afternoon.

8098, Conrail, is DPU on today’s 310. May already be on the Tier. 1072 snuck through leading 23K overnight and is in Ohio headed to Chicago now. May make a return trip on 22K. Keep an eye out!

The CR unit is buried in the consist for NS 310. However, NS often places the block for Gang Mills behind the DPU so photographers may have cleaner view of #8098 after the block is dropped off. I'm not sure where the train is now.
