Default Who still rosters U18Bs?

My question really should be if the Pickens is the last railroad with active U18Bs on the roster? I know there was someone that still had a few somewhat recently, but maybe my Google skills are going the way of my memory. Any help here?

The Pickens is the last place for active U18Bs, Joe. The Southern Railroad of New Jersey had one former Providence & Worcester U18B on their roster, but it was scrapped a few years ago.

I just saw 4 of the Pickens units a couple of weeks ago. It was a Sat., so everything was parked at the shop. U18B's 9500 & 9507 were MU'ed together and I think are being used on the Gluck line. Another nice looking U18B was parked at the shop, but I could not make out the number. One U18B is being stripped of parts over at the Dochino siding on the Honea Path line.

TheDieselShop has a U18B production roster, which includes the original owner, at

and a Pickens roster at

The listing of Preserved 1st Gen. GEs shows no U18Bs:
