Glad to see an Alco of any kind still in service, especially ex-N&W 1013. Way back in 1977, that engine was still in service on the N&W lines near Kenova, WV. Let's hope it stays running for a LONG time to come.

I've seen some slides of N&W 1013 in mainline service on ebay but it would be a lot better to have seen it in person! All I remember of it is when I was growing up is seeing it on the NYLE coming from Gowanda into Cattaraugus, NY and back. Last I knew it was sitting in the NYLE shop waiting for new wheels, but that has been over a year now.

Thanks Charlie!
 
These next two aren't too great but they're of the nose of B&H 416 in primer gray at the Falconer Shops on October 26, 2012.

Great to see the T6 still earning its keep. And still with an Alco Prime Mover!
