What happened to GP35 3537 3563 3574 (C&O) built between June and September 1964 that they were replaced in September 1965 by 3537:2 3563:2 3574:2 ?

Same question for SD35 7425 and 7428 built late 1964 but replaced 08.1965

C&O 3045, 3047,3537, 3563 and 3574 were wrecked 5/65 in Merlin, Ontario and returned to EMD for rebuilding. All outshopped as new GP35s. The 3045 and 3047 were renumbered 3583-3584. Source is X2233 note 41 of the combined C&O/B&O roster. That's the March/April issue of Extra 2200 South.
