Re: ns heritage units: who has seen them and who hasn't

The first ever NS heritage unit i saw (and mind you i live in WA) was oddly enough the Virginian ACe. After that it was the Conrail unit and the Cream Heritage unit that NS has, Cant think of the name.

The first EVER Heritage unit i caught was UP's Mopac Unit in 06 i think.
