Saw the 261 and an immaculate MP-15ac at Northport in the siding the other day, around 1335, waiting for the W/B LIRR passenger train to pass. Mixed bag of boxcars and centerbeam flatcars for Kleet in Huntington. Nice to see the NYA is using the font for the 261's # on the long hood that she wore when she was in the LIRR's blue & white Great White livery.

That same power was in Poscillico near New Highway today(6/24/19) in Farmindgale. I figured it was because of the LIRR trackwork and they get boxed out?
