Barely. I know the Wheeling and Lake Erie has SD40-2 running around still in WC paint, A couple of the SD45's went to a regional/shortline in North Dakota(Forgot the name), I think National Railway Equipment (if I got the name right) in Silvis, IL has a good deadline of SD45's, Larry Truck and Electric still had an F45, but could be scrapped by now, and I think there is one or two GP40's here and there. Not much left of the mighty WC....

I have actually been to Silvis, Illinois. I didn't see any in their yard and I have some sources up there that I can get into the yards. They sure do have the dead line of cascade green SD40-2's (FURX leases). Makes you wonder about where they are storing all this older power but they recently upgraded Silvis. It is a nice place to check in on from time to time.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking also. That and it doesn't help having my son go to school and come back with the every creeping crud that's going on around there and he happily comes home and shares with the rest of the family....thanks.
