No. 148's newly updated burner and firing pan can accept a variety of oils - including biofuels! Once on the tracks again and following #USSugar's commitment to green energy, #EngineNo148 will be powered using vegetable oil. #GreenEnergy

More material on FEC 148; captions are from "Engine No. 148," the Facebook site for the locomotive.

Our local U.S. Sugar locomotive mechanics, Sam and José, took the lead in changing the four wheelsets under the tender for No. 148. #USSugar #EngineNo148

It's always a good sign when the gauges begin to make an appearance! This vintage locomotive boiler pressure gauge, which was overhauled by FMW Solutions, has taken its rightful place at the top of the backhead.

Another pic, again with caption information coming from Engine No. 148's Facebook page.

Or it may be that the person who was doing the Facepalm updates has not had time for the previous frequency of posting, or some circumstance has made the updating notification less frequent.

This might be a far more appropriate issue to take up on the Facebook group itself, rather than speculate about here where no one knows.
