The Family of LA&L,B&H, WNY&P will always be powered by ALCO 251 engines. The only exception is LA&L 20 and 72.  
The 417 needs work before it can be put into service again and then it is scheduled to be assigned to Olean, NY for local service.

It should be noted that the B&H also has a pair of 539-powered S1,#s 4 and 5.

I would like to see an RS-3 or two aquired but most likely they are regarded as too old and not worth the trouble. Classic old engines just the same! Current roster should be enough to satisfy any ALCO lover.

 
 
Yes, RS-3s! But, are any for sale or worthy of repair? I think most are in museums or just scrap material.

Don't forget the Delaware -Lackawanna Railroad who owns 5 RS-3's. Most are in operation daily.

It would be so historic to see a pair of RS3's all decked out in LA&L paint assigned to do the honors when the Traveler is called up for a trip! But in reality they are a serious railroad and not a rolling museum, yet how goes the saying,  "hope springs eternal" for they do have a thing for orphan ALCO's

Caught the 427 sitting in a quiet Meadville yard. Nice to see something other then the 421 at the yard.
