Does anyone know what became of NS' former Illinois Terminal diesels? I know the Gp38-2's were sold the Georgetown Railraod in Texas. What happened to the SD39's and the switchers?

I know it's been 2 years since this question was posted, but GP7 #1605 is at the Illinois Railway Museum. Also Guilford does have 1 SD39 still in service.

The SD39s went to Guilford, but are now all gone.
