This subject may have been discussed before, but how many surviving SDP35's, 40's and 45's are still around?

Three Seaboard SDP35's are around at last check

1104 at Squaw Creek slightly modified
1111 at Southwest Portland Cement at last report - can anyone confirm it's still there?
1114 saved and restored at the museum in Hamlet

All other SDP35's gone (?)

Great Norther SDP40's

324 later BN 6326 was reported still stored on BNSF - can anyone confirm this?
325 donated to Minnesota Transportation museum

Any Mexican SDP40 survivors?

SDP45's

All SP units gone
Any GN units left?

Surviving Erie Lackawanna units are down to maybe a half dozen
One saved at VMT, but status in question (?)

Amtrak SDP40F's

644 saved
One EMD test bed - status?
Any others?

Here's an accounting of EL SDs:

https://scotlawrence.github.io/EL/index.html but just a few can be counted as preserved

Off the top of my head-
SCL SD45 preserved down south- currently on CSX and may be doing a gig on the Clinchfield Santa Train
WC SD45 at IRM
NP SD45 at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum
GN 400 at the MN Railway Museum
NW SD45 at the VA Museum of Transportation
SP SD45 at the Utah RR Museum

"Amtrak SDP40F's:

If I'm not mistaken, there are at least 2 SDP40F's at the Pueblo,CO Test Center. Personnel there seem to be aware of their significance so there should be a decent chance of them being donated to RR museums who ask for them.
