Recently I've been collecting a lot of slides and negatives of TP&W locomotives. Seeing all of the different units gets me wondering, how many are left? Obviously there's the two Centuries, the 400, and at least one Geep I was able to track down to a shortline in Pennsylvania. Are there any others?

TP&W received 11 GP38-2s in 1977-78, seven are still on the BNSF roster (2376-2382), and the others ended up with KCS via a leasing company, I'm not sure where those are now. TP&W's GP38-2s are easy to spot because they didn't have dynamic brakes. David Balko photo, 8/16/2017 at Galesburg:

Based on another roster I now think there were only 10 TP&W GP38-2s, the remaining three are still on KCS' roster (1921, 2002-2003), 09/24/2017 at Houston TX, Andrew B. photo:
