I hope that at least one P42DC, P40DC or P32AC-DM is preserved, given how they've been the workhorses of Amtrak for so long. Maybe one will end up at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania with the AEM-7AC that's already there. Maybe another at the California State Railroad Museum? Or the National Transportation Museum? Or the National Railroad Museum?

Chances are that they'll be sold off to tourist lines & commuter lines for a while. Heck there are still F40s being used across the country that could be replaced by P42s.
