Most of the slugs were made from RS-11's and RSD-12's (note the notches
in the ends), and some of them were ex-PC, but others may have been
ex-LV too. 

Most of CR's GP38's (7675-8039) and the GP38-2's (8140-up) are ex-PC.
Very few SD40's and GP40's, if any, remain. The U23C's were retired
last year. Of course, the FL9's are still running on M-N and CDOT.

Some of the SW1500's are ex-CR, but most of the 567-engined EMD
switchers are gone.
