Rumor has it their restored ALCO PA will be hitching a ride on a Norfolk Southern line thru Buffalo to Binghamton to Scranton. Any one have a more clear understanding of when and where? Be really nice to get some pics and even video of the trip :)

It's not going to Steamtown. It's going to the Delaware-Lackawanna RR. Nice video. Location?

Actually NKP/DL 190 is going to be temporarily displayed at Steamtown per Trains Magazine on-line article of May 16, 2023. Excerpt:
SCRANTON, Pa. — Genesee Valley Transportation’s historic American Locomotive Co. PA-model “Nickel Plate Road 190” locomotive will be temporarily displayed at Steamtown National Historic Site after its long-anticipated arrival from the West Coast, according to GVT President Michael D. Thomas.

Over the weekend, National Park Service staff and Steamtown volunteers repositioned GVT’s Lackawanna No. 426, a rare early Electro-Motive Corp. SC-model diesel switcher, to make a suitable display site for NKP 190. It will remain there for an undetermined period, but likely will move in June to GVT’s nearby Von Storch Locomotive Shop, also in Scranton, for evaluation and completion of the restoration.

“We are aware of the popularity of the locomotive and Steamtown offers a safe, secure, and accessible location for the public to experience this magnificent machine,” Thomas said.
