467 was the one that was wrecked in summer 2017 and then repaired, however it did not return to revenue service. It went east rather recently.
468 and 470 worked Piedmonts for a month or so after heading east sometime in September while NCDOT power was rumored to be undergoing PTC work. There may have also been a couple of Surfliner units there, too.

466 and 469 were seen in Seattle this weekend along with Surfliner 463, which has been working Cascades trains since May. It appears that none of them have run trains in the last couple of weeks. I am unsure of the status of 465.

Just saw 463 trailing two P42s on a late #8 passing by a A5.
