I think someone is pulling your leg. These units were on their last legs as it was, restricted to shuttle service and often two to a "mini" (3-coach consist). And they don't have ACSES and they might need environmental waivers. I don't recall what MNRR did with their units, but they have only one F10 on property, and they're holding that for a museum I think. CtDOT still has five units I think? And they've been stripped in the NH yard, sitting rusting away. CtDOT did try to sell them; no takers. If there's a contract on any of the units, they'd be out there.
Now, there are operational FL9's elsewhere, including one on Maine Eastern, and one on the Naugatuck. The ME one could be for sale; there was an operator/ownership change and the new owner is not interested in passenger ops. Naugy would never let their's go. Danbury has some static displays that are probably intact, but again, I doubt a museum would let one go.
It's just not practical.
