Last week I saw a CSX GP-30 in tandem with a GP-40 and I wondered how many were still in use and who may be using them.

If you have seen a CSX "GP30" out on the road in the past 15 years, its a slug..
I think there are now no GP30's remaining in Class-1 service.
BNSF had some (rebuilt, of course) running up into 2009..but I think they are all now retired.
(maybe a few still running..anyone know?)
A few soldier on in shortline service..
