According to Chris Toth's site, most all of those units are still on the active roster and are just in storage. All of the SD60's, SD60M's, and SD60I's (6600's - 6800's) are scheduled to be sold a auction by NS. 25 of the remaining 50 some SD70's (2500's), many of which are in those images, are slated to be rebuilt into SD70ACc's in 2019. The remaining SD70M-2's and ex CR Dash 8-40CW's are just to be stored for now.

Welcome to PSR on NS.
