Unit is now equipped with Hot Start and will be moving to Falconer shortly after doing some road testing on LAL.

heh..no, im just happy to see her back in service!
Susquehanna 3000 is an old friend, I used to drive out to Binghamton in the 80's just to look for her..
then I have watched her sit in Lakeville that last several years..
waiting...waiting....
normally, when an old alco stops running for 4 years, its not good news.
 
After the LV C420's, the Susquehanna C430's are my favorite alcos..
(and there are only two of them left!)
this is great!

There's a photo of this beloved loco in the January issue of Trains (p20).
 
=====================
 
Caption: Former New York, Susquehanna & Western Alco C430 No 3000 (built 1967 as New York Centerl 2050) leads a train on Sept 13 at Rush, NY, for new owner Western New York & Pennsylvania, which fixed up and renumbered the unit but hadn't yet repainted it. Rush is a location on the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville, part owner of the WNYP.

Northbound today on the LAL, seen entering Avon, NY is #420 & #430 with about 10 cars.   #430 looks real nice.   Should be on the lead for the southbound trip.  I will try to get the camera warmed up for this.
