"The Western New York Railway Historical Society is happy to receive Greenidge’s donation of their old yard switcher diesel locomotive for a static display at the restored Lehigh Valley Depot located at 86 South Long St. in the village of Williamsville near Buffalo. "

more pics in last weeks Amherst Bee hard copy but I see requires a digital account to read that one. That article had a lot more details on actually settling the loco up on site.

In this article below mentions "Tuesday morning saw a cadre of escort vehicles and N.Y. State Troopers to safeguard the old loco’s trip south through Watkins Glen to I-86, then westward to Salamanca and then north to its final destination. Salamanca???

Why not 86 up 390 N to the Thruway then on to Buffalo?
