What happened to the four GP-38s (Bull Durham Nos. 1-4) that the D&S bought? They didn't have dynamic brakes and were at last contact being used as yard switchers.

The four D&S GP38-2s (not GP38s), labeled as "Bull Durham" #1-4, are now CSX #2556-2559.

I haven't seen any of these for at least 2-3 years. I believe the last time one was seen was on CSX unit auto rack train Q214 with CSX GP38-2 #2558 on the point! This train was seen at the CSX/NS diamond/crossing at Crawford,FL on the CSX Callahan Subdivision (then part of the Jacksonville Service Lane).

Although I haven't seen them lately, as recent as six months ago, one was working the south yard at Acca and shot it.
