Remarks & Notes 
Most likely withdrawn from service by this date, three of RF&P’s four GP7’s stand near the Bryan Park shops. Parts from all four were later used to create a single GP7, numbered 101 and painted in the original diesel paint scheme, becoming what may well have been the first “heritage” unit. RF&P 101:2 survives today on the Buckingham Branch railroad, property of the Old Dominion Chapter of the NRHS.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
