The last three IC&E (ex. SOO) GP9s are now sitting at the dead line between Nahant Yard (Davenport, IA) and the West Davenport Yard (also sometimes referred to as Schmidt(Rd) Yard) with capped pipes. So far, since the CP take over, CP has yet to take anything out of this line to put back into service. Looks like this will spell the end for the GP9s.

It's sounding more and more like CP will spell the end for many things on the former ICE. The GP40-2s are already gone, the SD40-2s are strongly rumored to be returned from lease, and now the ICE GP9s are gone.

Thanks for this report. Yet another era is over, it appears.
