NWP "ghost" locos in Eureka are being removed this week

Drove past Commercial Street this morning and there's a crew working on the 4 NWP locomotives behind the fence.  They've already moved the southernmost engine to one end of the yard, and are pulling the others around with a Bobcat.  I drove in and learned that they'll be loading them onto flatbed trucks in the next few days before the foreman chased me out.  He wouldn't tell me who they worked for, and their pickups weren't marked, so must be a private contractor.  If anyone wants to save these babies (or at least get photos), now's your last chance.

Thanks!  Sounds like it's worth a visit.

It's funny.  If you go to google maps and street view on the south side of his lot you can see 1322 in there.

Not sure if this will work.....

And 1922, prepaint!

What date was this picture taken?

Still in the yard as of yesterday.

Will they save any of these locos and restore them to operating condition? And how would they get 3190 down to Sacramento, sine the line is messed up south of Eureka?
