American Car & Foundry No. 8, a GE 45-tonner, was sold in auction held in Milton, Pa at the end of July. It was recently transported to Lowville where the new owner hopes to establish a tourist operation.

Here's a link to a news story:

If they are planning on using the Carthage station as one anchor, they've got some substantial bridge work to do on the Black River bridge. It's my understanding that a pier has settled...

You can see it in the street view where a pier has sunk, there's a bit of a wave in the rails.

Looks like the MA&N has been pulled up below Shady Ave. down to Kraft, the L&BR may be what they intend to use but it's pretty rough on the lower end. You could just go to West Carthage and not use the bridge I suppose, that looks to be in better shape but none of this track has been used in a very long time.
