EMD GMD GP9

First, has anyone snapped any photos of the old MMRR 24 since she moved on to her new home?

Second, has anyone seen the old MMRR 179 recently? Last I saw she was in Minnesota.

I only chased MMRR GP9 #24 once, with Dad (RCJ I), on 10-20-2005! I wish I saw it more times (hopefully again down in VA :D )! However, I never saw Grand Rapids Eastern® #3839 in person!!!! :( At least I did see (same trip as seeing MMRR 24) MMRR GP9s 179/180 switching at the Holland, MI Amtrak® station! They were in those "Mop Colors!"
I also saw them with Dad (RCJ I) on the Goderich—Exeter®, July 1996! I never saw #180 in the Michigan Shore® paint (or any Michigan Shore® locos :cry:)!!!! I know #180 is
"Scrapped" and I can't find anything online about where #179 is located now!!!!


Here's a video, ©Copyright KINOTUBE.INFO, of MMRR 24 leaving MI on CSX, 6-5-2016: http://kinotube.info/channel/watch/r_IqjzYmbA0

This is the latest shot I've found of 24, on L352-18 in Connellsville, PA on June 19. Nothing since then.

Last image I can find of 179 is from 2011 in Moorehead, MN.

I'm glad to see the k5 is not on the 24 in that picture. I know they wanted to keep it around (maybe they should put it on 2019).

That picture of 179 is the last I have seen, too. Would really like to know what happened to the old girl.
