Default Nashville & Eastern U30Bs being scrapped?

That would appear to be the case for this pair:

These were some of the last active U30Bs in the U.S.

I photographed Nashville & Eastern U30B's #5340 and 5344 on 12-4-05 in Louisville,KY on CSX. Both were enroute to Mansbach Metals at that time. Would assume the second unit in the latest photo to be the #5344. The #5340 looks much the same today as it did when I shot it in 2005. It is a certainly a surprise that both of these units still exist nearly 4 years after arriving on the property. I believe 1 more Nashville & Eastern U30B went to Mansbach but can't confirm that.
