The area between Gentry, AR and Stillwell, OK has a local trio of EMD Geeps, usually a mix of rebuilt GP40's and GP38's (either of the -2 or -3 variety). I've once even seen former CN units assigned to the area. Here at the site of the former depot, we see the trio of GP40's, two former PC/CR, one former B&O.

KCS 2830 was built as PC 3150 in September of 1968. Transferred to Conrail April 1st, 1976, it was sold October 1983 to KCS, where it received a white coat of paint and a renumber to 775. It was then rebuilt to -3 specs by Morrison-Knudsen in 1991 and renumbered again to 4792 - this time in grey. It was renumbered again around 2009 to it's current number. Sometime between 2017 and 2021, it was repainted into Southern Belle, which has stayed since.
