Looks like a big ol' negative.

Hi,

Perhaps they are at Mt. Vernon instead?

The address:
908 Shawnee St
Mt. Vernon, IL 62864

Looking at Google Earth they might be off the tracks in the southern area (looks like a parts/junk area). If so, in very bad shape.

Did you use the "Ruler" in the task bar to check the length?

For those on Trainorders, last drone overflight of NRE Mount Vernon 05 Feb 2017

The locos I was looking at there have high hoods, so that can't be them. Looks like they may be gone indeed.

On the LIRR Forum it says that SEPTA has scrapped former LIRR Alco FA-2 #615, along with former LIRR EMD F-7A #622.

I saw that the 5 ex CN BBD HR616s were no longer visible at NRE in Silvis, Illinois (based on the drone video below). They had been sitting around for over 15 years and were in rough shape, leading me to believe they met the torch.

Those all look mostly complete - in a much better shape than a lot of Alcos on storage lines by any chance.

Looks like roller bearing trucks on at least 2 of them...not very common for Blunt trucks
