Is this unit still in active service?

There was an article somewhere, perhaps on the Trains newswire that it had been used recently on the first grain train in years on Dakota Southern.

Yes, the unit is in active service. Currently located at Presho, SD in work train service after having pulled 51 grain empties to Presho.
