Could someone update me please! I've heard the 7206, 7212, 7214, 7216 are going to become parts units, and I know 7215 is in service.
Can anyone correct / update this for me? Thanks!

7216 has already been stripped of usable parts. Right now the frame, with cab and low nose mostly intact, is being used as a platform to store its prime mover which, I am told, is in good shape. The long hood was cut up for scrap late last summer or early fall. I know some of the other RS-11s have been evaluated, but I don't know their status. Right now none of the RS-11s are being worked on and none have been since last year.
