Hey everyone, check out this tidbit just posted on the Lehigh Railway thread:

sallenparks wrote:Well it seems instead of be rebuilt for use on the LRWY the two RS18's are going to the LAL as B&H 416 & WNYP 417.

from: viewtopic.php?f=128&t=55770&p=1028214#p1028214

Not a rumor..units have been spotted in Owego lettered for B&H and WNYP:

according to a sniped on railfan.net 1811 B&H 416 is in olean that means 1850 must be WNYP 417.

I was just going to ask the same thing. Seems this deal has disappeared off the radar.

The 418 is still in Owego and the 416 is in the shop in Olean being prepped for service.

exMaine Coast RS11 was sighted in Ohio.

I hope it's on its way to the WNY&P. They are said to be looking for more 4-axle power.

Hi
I was in Olean on Friday, 8 June, and both RS-18r units were there. I was also in Lakeville on the Saturday and saw the former blue C-425 through the front door, pretty in Black and being masked for the stripes and lettering.

Really enjoyed visiting your part of the world. Managed to see 53 Alcos in a 3 day period. I was in Alco heaven.
Cheers
Steve
There's only one Alco in NZ. 8-(

To answer my own question, as of 7/31/12 416 is still in the shop at Olean and 417 awaits shop-time outside.

Here is a picture of WNYP 417 in primer gray the Falconer shop on October 26. I drove by the other day and it had its final coat of paint on it. I couldn't tell if it was black or the same shade of blue that WNYP 430 has. They were just finishing putting the diagonal yellow stripes on the front that day. I'll try and get some pictures of it in its final colors once it is outside.
