We've also lost most of the C&NWs, too, though they've long been in shorter number.

Are these the yellowgreen ones of the same number range? Or a different unit type completely?

Thanks for the information;

Easter saw a purge on SP units;

Now just seven remain;

6236, 6248, 6310, 6318, 6367, 6379, 6406.

Conflicting reports on Hertiage Units suggested 6248 was done but a couple of recent photos on Flickr one only a couple of days ago still show in carrying the Southern Pacific flag. Did a YouTube on it and most recent ie middle of this month and still a SP unit.

I wouldn't bet on it. Someone in either Omaha or Little Rock committed to getting all the remaining SP, SSW, and CNW units into yellow & grey during 2018, and it seems to be happening...

A update. Still just seven in the Southern Pacific livery as listed above. No further reprints so they have made it into July at least. Any further ahead remains to be seen.

Some good news being one unit was incorrectly reported as painted and is still SP. Can also confirm 6248 as still SP.

Therefore eight remain; not many but never the less;

6236, 6348, 6310, 6318, 6367, 6378, 6379, 6406.
