Well, it looks like we will be keeping this going for a little while longer. Thanks EMD for making such a good product!
I submit NS #6133 resting on the "Grocery Track" in Suffolk, VA at 1945Hrs on 1/4/16. That N&W covered hopper don't look to bad for its age either.

They still look nice and sound amazing.  They first hit the railroads in 1972 and were the top power for many years on 1 Class railroads and still are used in local service for the most part on 1 Class railroads.  The rebuilding programs now are extending their lives for many more years.

CSX #8484 is still working. Here it is working as a yard job for Newport News yard. He is out on the Hampton Branch near the end of what was the C&O line to Ft. Monroe. They loaded the flat today and are headed back to the yard.

Nice shots, Mike! I agree the SD40-2 is a very durable product!  
 
My first sighting of an SD40-2 for the year was NS #3475 at CP Waverly:

Check the history on CSX 8484: started working as PRR SD45 6234, went to PC and CR, then sold to C&NW as 6557.  It was rebuilt by M-K and sold to CSX as an SD40-2.
 
Here's another one with a history: CSX 8459, rebuilt by M-K from MP SD40 747.  Notice the yellow beacon above the cab window; looks like radio-control.

Sort of a shame that 8484 lost its flared rads
 
I sure wouldn't mind seeing a Pennsy painted SD45 on the rails today...

Caught a train in Manassas, VA with 4 units on it. The first 3 were SD40-2s, 2 NS rebuilds with Admiral Cabs and one ex-leaser with the original cab. I'm not sure about the 4th unit, can't seem to find it in the Diesel Spotters Guides I have.

Looks like BNSF has no need of a "Heritage Unit" program.   BNSF #1608, a SD40-2, Ex-BNSF #6727, Exx-ATSF #5068. 10/6/16 @1510Hrs in Albuquerque, NM.

I caught Lehigh Railway #5700 a long way from home. She was on NS 36T (third unit), returning from a trip to Ohio.
