Exclamation Location of NS 58 and NS 59?

I know I have a shot of NS 50 in the yard in Atlanta, and I've heard they're all being retired. Perhaps anyone knows the location of NS 58 and 59? They're the last remaining original Central of Georgia motors on the road today, and there aren't any recent shots on the site. I'd love to get a shot of them before the scrappers torch gets its way. (Or maybe a museum will get one?!?) Thanks!

All the SD9's have been gathered in Conway Yard in PA. NS 52 and 57 are still based out of Pavonia Yard in Camden, NJ because they were rebuilt as remote controlled units. When did you get the shot of #50?

I hope a museum or shortline acquires one or a few of them. Unfortunately, I paid attention to their rarity a little too late.

The eight SD9s at Conway where moved east this morning. Not 100% percent sure where they are going, but early reports look like maybe JBS.
