I was just buying tickets for a NYS Maple Weekend trip on the A & A, and was wondering about motive power for the ride and hit upon their Facebook page. I don't use FB, so I just click upon pages that you don't have to be signed in to see. Anyways, their top post, March 4, says the repairs to #18 are much more extensive and #18 will not run for the 2019 season.
Also, that NYS Maple weekend trip I mentioned above, is a rare ride to the end of the line (and return to Curriers Sta. to eat pancakes) in North Java to the Kibler's Sugar Shack - I remember going there a few years ago, it's on the west side of Reisdorf's on the south side of Perry Rd.
