Hi,

Perhaps they are at Mt. Vernon instead?

The address:
908 Shawnee St
Mt. Vernon, IL 62864

Looking at Google Earth they might be off the tracks in the southern area (looks like a parts/junk area). If so, in very bad shape.

Did you use the "Ruler" in the task bar to check the length?

The locos I was looking at there have high hoods, so that can't be them. Looks like they may be gone indeed.
