Default "New" locomotive for the Luzerne & Susquehana

Looks like some bigger power is on the way there. Ex Providence & Worcester U23B 2211 was noted at Benning Yard in Washington, DC yesterday lettered for the L&S. This locomotive has been at a power plant in Maryland for the last several years, and I do not know its mechanical status. It possibly may head for a contract shop before going to the L&S.

To update this, the U23B will actually go to L&S affiliated Lehigh Railway. They have also picked up 3 ex P&W GP40s for this power hungry operation, which is seeing greatly increased traffic from the Marcellus Shale drilling operations in northeastern PA and southern NY.

I still have no idea if the unit has actually made it to them. It toured the CSX system for weeks after I made the original post it had left Benning Yard in DC.
