It is still there, but no longer used. Last time I saw it working was late last summer. Shortly after, around August or September 2018, a trackmobile arrived to take over. Since then the S6 has not moved, while the trackmobile instead is used a few times a week.

Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland,B.C. has an operational S6 # 803. Was SP 1050, then Portland Terminal 46, then Neptune Terminals 803. 
 
National RR Museum in Green Bay, Wisc has an x SP S6 unit operable. Has been painted as C&NW and GB&W while there.

I recall mention of a couple of xSP S6's still at a chemical plant in Canada recently.

There's a T-6 owned by the Georges Creek Ry at Luke, Md.

N&W T6 # 41 is preserved in the museum in Roanoke, VA.

Arkansas & Missouri has a T6, I think it's stored/retired now in Springdale,Ark.

GVT Rail has an S-6 in operation at the Batavia (NY) transload facility.  Came from one of the Bethlehem Steel roads.

For many years, there was an idle S-6 at Hamilton City CA at the former Holly Sugar Plant.  It is now scrap metal somewhere. Sad; it was still operable until the end.  I and some TO members tried to arrange a purchase from a (now proven) corrupt demolition contractor but he skipped town and ownership of the S-6 transferred to a legal limbo.  Yearly, I would go by and take a photo and then one day it was gone.

The one that's painted for Cargill Michigan Division? I thought that was an S6?
