The 3 GP59 demonstartors were purchased by NS in 1988. Are they still on the roster?

No, #4636 wasn't a demo. The demos became #'s 4606-4608 I think. Looks like they are still running around out there somewhere.

Yup, these pups are still kicking and they likely will be for awhile. Don't forget I believe only one GP50 was retired due to a wreck....These things are older and MUCH less reliable than the GP59. No reason not to believe these 59's will be around for 10 or 15 years more at least......

One of these came thru Bluefield,WV about a week ago. Headed east bound toward Roanoke on a merchandise train. It was painted in the Southern green, white and gold paint scheme.
