Seen NS 8098 (Conrail) and NS 8102 (PRR).

Saw 8098 on 264 in Allen Park, MI and NS 8102 in Toledo, OH with a Detroit Edison coal train (I'm guessing it may have been an 863?).

I haven't seen any NS heritage units in person. I saw UP 1982 (Mopac unit) in Nappanee in July '10, and 4 Amtrak heritage units in the past year.

Just the Southern unit for me. Caught it loading a coal train near Norton, VA back in April.
