Are the Alco Century 430s the former NYSW units? Thanks.

WNYP 430 and 433 are ex-NYSW units, 431 and 432 having arrived via the M&E. They were all built for the NYC. The other NYSW units have been scrapped, AFAIK.

It was interesting seeing a photo of freshly painted 433 sitting outside the Lakeville engine house, on type "B" trucks.

December 13, 2016, LAL 433 is indeed photographed wearing Type B trucks:

the caption of the photo says "The LA&L 433 is all painted up, but is still in need of some more work, including putting the hi-ad trucks back on."

2017 - LAL 433 is out on the road, back at work with the LAL, wearing her original Hi-Ad trucks:

(sorry if you arent on Facebook and cant open that link..but Facebook is the only place I have seen photos of 433 in operation.)

Are they running the c430 on Saturday's (October 7) excursion? What about weekday freight runs with #433?
Thanks.

Yes, #433 was on the October 7th excursion. The C430 has also been used at times in freight service since then.
