I'm hoping CSX comes in and rebuilds them :-D
If anything those will get dispose of fairly quickly on the CSX surplus site. CSX has a lot of 4 axle EMD power in storage, so I would be surprised if they got rebuilt. I am sure that GMTX would be willing to add 20-30 more units to the lease fleet. Although, I could see some of the former GMTX rebuilds (345, 503, 507, and 3405) sticking around since those are still in fairly decent condition. The rest of the 3400 fleet, from my observations has been beat pretty hard. I think out of the 3400-3404, the 3401 and 3403 are the only two that are still half decent runners. As for the other 3, they have had atleast two end up with freeze damage not long after arriving.

I can recall one time back in 2016 in Ayer a CSXPD cruiser coming into the yard and reclaiming several of their markers that had been stashed there and were frequently used by the local crews. They had cellular and GPS antennas :P

Have any Guilford/Pan Am engines been spotted, working other CSX territories outside of the northeast, or has CSX been keeping them all away?

Virtual Railfan showed one in Ohio (a GE unit). Couldn't tell if it was running or being towed. The E units were shown going south through Ashland, I presume to Florida.
