This is Barry.  I was wondering after the 1993 merger of the GBW and WC, where did all of the GBW Alcos go?  I know a few went to the Minnesota Commercial but where did the rest go?  Thanks

found 7 of them:
 
GB&W 315 - Alco C430  National RR Museum, Green Bay, WI.
 
GB&W 305 - Alco RS3u (RS20M)  - Gopher State Railway Museum.
 
GB&W 308 - Alco RS3u (RS20M) -  Monticello Railway Museum (Illinois)  
 
GB&W 2407 - Alco RSD15 - Illinois Railway Museum.
 
Livonia, Avon and Lakeville has three Centuries:
LAL 427   Alco C424  ex-GBW 320, exx-EL 2412    
LAL 428   Alco C424  ex-GBW 321, exx-EL 2415    
LAL 429   Alco C424  ex-GBW 319, exx-PRR 2415, (the only PRR C424)

Are those LAL Centuries running?  I believe they worked in Southern Arkansas during the early to mid 90s.

they arent running yet, but they are next in line to go in the shop to be put back in operating condition.

RS11 309&RS20 I forget the number went to KB&S the 11 was wrecked and scrapped the RS20 survied untill the EMD take over might still be alive somewhere. The C420 went to IAIS then LNA&G where it hasn't run that I know of and the MNNR RS20 I think 307 is up in Canada at NRE.I hope some of this is helpful.

Here's 305 in 1978.  Any idea who rebuilt the RS3s?

I enjoyed a short visit to Green Bay coming back east from visiting a retired relative in Kansas.  After taking some shots of the crew flat-switching the yard, I headed for my car.  The engine stopped at the crossing, and the fireman waved at me.  I finally figured out he wanted to talk; when he saw New York plates on my car, he thought I came out just to photograph the GB&W.  He invited me up into the cab and talked about random stuff, as the RS3 jerked back and forth.  Cool guy, cool Alcos, cool railroad.
