(I am only posting photos from 2012 or 2013..anything older than that, and we cant be sure its still in CR blue today.
technically we cant be sure from even a month ago! ;) but 2012 and 2013 photos make it fairly likely the unit is still in blue)

LLPX GP15-1 1503:

A contender for the oldest unit still in CR blue, Winchester and Western Railroad GP10 No. 752,
built in 1956 as NYC GP9 5972.

WAMX 1528

Both units are Ex Conrail SW1500's both are still in Conrail Blue and move about the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.

From what I found WAMX has a bunch of former Conrail units all of them are a mix of former PC / PRR / RDG / EL and they got 1 LV unit Ex 108 are still active and move between Oklahoma and Kansas.

ex DLW, EL, CR gp 9 (if i remember right) was posted in FB, passing through horseshoe few days ago.. I believe that it's heading for .... steamtown or somewhere to be restored into DLW...

I dont know where it came from. it's still in CR blue. No one answered to my Q about where it came from.
