Does CSX still use the GE Dash 7's in Maryland?

Hey guy's, new to the forum, thanks for the add.
The title kinda says it all haha.

I was wondering, whether or not CSX still uses these trains?

Thanks!

CSX doesn't roster any more GE dash 7's. The oldest GE's they have rostered are the Dash 8-c's and 8-CW's...

Ah ok thanks a lot man, I've been meaning to find that out for a minute now.
So what exactly happens with trains they don't use anymore?

Locomotives that have outlived the economic life on Class 1 carriers are either sold off to short line carriers, leasing companies or scrapped.

Those d-7s in cumberland are derelict and stored in the E yard. They have trees growing through them.
