Any updates on former F40PHs?

Been looking online for pictures or anything of the two former Maine Eastern F40phs that went to Gold Coast Limited in Canada. Any pictures of them since arrivng there or any information about them?

They were sold to Tshiuetin Railway about 2 years ago, & I haven't heard or seen much about them since. The FL9's (488, & 489) took their place.

The last I saw of them they were sporting GCLX reporting marks which I believe is Gold Coast Limited. M&E replaced them with the FL9s for fuel reasons I think. I came across this picture and it could be the former ME F40PHs the picture is small, but it may help.
