I believe #100 is at the Laharpe shops.

So with the change in ownership what is the future of the LaHarpe Shops and what units are currently stored here? My understanding is the new owners want to sell or scrap many of the Pioneer units.

There was a big list published last year (that I can't seem to find now) of all of the units Pioneer was going to be selling. Mostly older NW and SW switchers along with the KJRY F units and some other oddities and older Geeps. Ex Ludington & Northern SW8 #16 was on that list, I don't believe its in Kendalville anymore.

On a related note, PREX 1000 (Elkhart & Western) was spotted on an eastbound NS train at Northwood, OH this morning. Anyone know where its headed?

This claims to be March 2020, a few observations it seems that Pioneer has pulled more GP-20s out of storage and put them in service. Missing are switchers like SW13, SW 1200s, Vandalia's SW9 and the former KT SW8. Some of these are still for sale. I'm not sure whether the switchers were sold or scrapped.
