Is Vermont Railway still running the SD70M-2s it acquired in 2015? Thanks!

I was looking at pictures of these a while back. Looked like they spent several months with tarps over their engine compartment a year or two back and then returned to service.

Did they perhaps send out the 710's from the pair to be overhauled?
