Im not saying they should all be saved, thats unrealistic. One, maybe two. The SP&S C425, and N&W and CV RS11's have very little value other than scrap at this point. Many other examples exist.
The point I was trying to make is that there are groups out there that would have interest in the other two. There are less and less RS3's out there every day. I can think of 10 off the top of my head that are curently endangered, two of which are ex. LH&HR. That leaves one(BKRR 605) and its days may be numbered. NYC RS3's are slightly better, but some are repowered and two of the un-rebuilt ones are endangered. Don't judge a book by its cover. One man's junk is another man's treasure.
