ex PC C425 on NY&LE

The last news on this C424 is from 2004 and I am looking for some more recent news if there is any.

Judging from the photo, it needs too much work to meet FRA specs to have left on it's own wheels. So it's pretty much a matter of when it's scrap value exceeds it's value as a parts source -

The recent news the same as its been for the last 10 years or more.
nothing has changed..its still a derelict, its a parts engine, 99.9% likely it will never turn a wheel again. :(

Its a C425, not a C424.

built as PRR 2431 - PC 2431 - CR 2431 - CR 5067 - NYLE 5067

I dont believe it ever actually operated with NYLE..it was always a parts unit for them..anyone know when it arrived in Gowanda?
I know it was retired by CR in 1980..

Most of the units Conrail renumbered to the 5000-series never even operated for Conrail with those numbers. But I'd bet the unit came with the 6101 from M-K - seems like both were leftovers from the GE rebuild program at Hornell that did units for GBW and D&H among others.

Thank you for the information. Is there any legal and/or safe way to photograph this locomotive?

I think that this locomotive is viewable from the road. It might have been bounced around a bit, so perhaps this is no longer the case.
