I was dogsitting in Falconer in late April and was lucky to catch a meet between two WNY&P trains. A train from Olean and one from Meadville met at 1pm on a warm and muggy Thursday afternoon.

#432 is pushing one car that is going up the spur to Bush Industries.
 
I'm glad it's a nice day for that conductor.

My fave color scheme, too, but there's nary an unattractive unit running LAL family lines.

Great shots, glad to see the ol' hometown railroad is still taking care of business. Interesting Seaboard throwback on the side of #430, anyone know the story on the slogan beneath the cab number? Did any other WNYP units get it?

"Pulling for You" slogan has been used by Seaboard Coast Line and UP:
