SW-1001's & MP-15ac's on dead line parallel to Atlantic Ave.

Passed by Morris Park E/B on Atlantic Ave late last night and noticed a mixed-bag of switchers on the dead line that parallels the Flatbush Ave trackage and Atlantic Avenue. Looked like SW-1001's and MP-15ac's. Which units are there and what type of failure landed them there??????? Thanks.

Rode the train to Atlantic Terminal today. As we passed through Morris Park, I noticed LI MP15AC 165 and LI SW1001 105, 106 (formerly on lease for the past 19 years to NYA) in LI Orange and Grey livery, 107 and former Harold Protect 102. Are there any plans to return these engines to service or are they going to just sit there and be scavenged for parts to maintain the remainder of the LI MP15AC/SW1001 fleet? Thanks
