Looks like Norfolk Southern cornered the market on this model. They bought all 3 demonstrators and then ordered 33 more. The 12 cylinder 710G3 engine put out 3000HP and has 3 microprocessors in the electrical cabinet. Here we find one, NS #4625, switching the plant at West Point, VA on 9/22/15 at 1350Hrs. NS has rebuilt a dozen and calls them GP59E.

Another view of NS #4625. I love the door hook.
