With the Ronkonkoma Branch out this weekend for switch work east of Farmingdale, caught this work train after the snow stopped this morning.Train is not moving. On #166, I noticed the white decals on yellow paint doesn't look good.

Hello tj48, the #152 is special to me and my family, my Dad retried in 1977 and # 152 was his engine that day, its good to hear its still running and did they repaint it yet?
