Hey Jeep, I would doubt it since most of those 90s that were here are out west some being readied for a trip to South America. B&P didn’t have much luck the first time around and has been buying the ex CN/WC SD40-3s lately.

Caught my first B&P mainline action in Ridgway on the way to the Chainsaw Carver's Rendezvous.

I've always wondered what the original power for the B&P was when it first began. I imagine the GP9's and some R&S GP40s were on hand, but does anyone have a roster over the first few years of operation?
When did the KYLE GP40s come online?

Does anyone happen to know what operations in DuBois are like?  When do SIRI and RISI go through compared to locals and the run to Driftwood?

I did some hunting around, found this railfan group's report:
 
http://akronrrclub.wordpress.com/tag/buffalo-pittsburgh-railroad/
 
"The railroad will then move on to replace its last large wood trestle. Work on that project at Iron City is expected to begin in March 2014.
...
Trains continue to use the line Monday through Thursday. Construction work is done on Friday through Sunday."

If you frequent any train shows, you might find old copies of Railfan magazine...
