Default South Branch Valley Railroad- Short Visit

The State-owned, South Branch Valley Railroad, in W.Va., is rarely talked about on the internet. It is in a rather isolated region, well off the main highways. The railroad operates mostly with first generation GP's and SD's.
Last week, my wife and I passed through Moorefield, W.Va. on our vacation trip. Moorefield happens to be the location of the SBVR shops. We stopped by, but being a Sunday, everything was closed down.
Two active engines were seen in front of the shops; GE centercab #80, and SD18(?) #182.
On the deadline next to the shop, I saw GP's #,6135, and #90, as well as SD's #180 and 181. All seem to be serving as parts supply units now. Behind the shop was GP #91, possibly still active.
Attached are a few photos from my cell phone.
