Hello Illinois,
can anyone help?
im looking for a missing GP8.

she was last known as Central Michigan 9210,
and I found this report that she was sold:

CMGN 9210 leaves town...
Paul Cameron reports that Central Michigan Railway has sold GP-8 #9210 and it is heading south today (3/7/2003).
9210 left Bay City for Durand this morning to be forwarded to the CN.
It has been reportedly sold to an elevator in southern Illinois.
This leaves its sibling 9209 out of service at North Bay City with major generator problems.
9209 is also looking for a buyer. These two GP-8's on the CMGN lasted just over ten years, having entered service later in 1992.

from:

So she is now working for a Grain Elevator in Southern Illinois.
she is likely still in CMGN Black & White,

although she could have been repainted.

Has anyone seen her?
anyone know where she is and if she is still operating?

im trying to track her for this list im making:
