When will the 159 be back in Fresh Pond? Also is the 151 next to be sent out for rebuild? If so when will the 151 be going out to Altoona for rebuild?

That will depend on CSX NOT having it get rerouted at Selkirk's Black hole of a yard. :(

Does the NYA also have the units that are sent to Altoona for rebuild repainted also? The pic of 159 is a good one- she looks sharp and the paint looks new. Is it? Thanks.

All rebuilt engines are/will be repainted.

What is the latest on the 159? Is she back in Fresh Pond yet? If so when will the 151 be sent out for rebuild if it hasn't been sent out already? I plan to go out to PA to see it on the move in the next few weeks if that is when it is scheduled to go out to Altoona. Thanks.

Arrived at Pond a couple days ago. Still needs electronics installed.

Photos of 159 post rebuild:

Glass End: http://www.railpictures.net/photo/683390/

Nose End: http://www.railpictures.net/photo/683391/

Cab Interior: http://www.railpictures.net/photo/683392/

Once again the locomotive still needs electronics (Cab signalling, ACSES, Witronix, etc) installed and needs to be tested before being released so please don't ask when it'll be out on the road.

Kind of a ridiculous question but does the 159 still have its original bell on the roof of the hood or does it now have an e-bell like the 300 and the 301?

The 159 received a replacement Nathan P3 and replacement mechanical bell from Juniata.
