Rumors of the demise of the ICE SD40-2 fleet are now coming to pass. The entire batch of 52 has been sold to Genesee & Wyoming as part of CP's sale of the west end of the DME, which G&W will operate as the Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern.

RCPE will begin operations as early as June 1st, and the railroad will be headquartered in Rapid City. This will bring an end to the ICE-powered ethanol many of us enjoyed seeing in the East over the past couple of years.
