I feel after those two people did that urbex video, this equipment got a lot of unwanted negative attention. I see the LIRR plated over the doors.

2909 and 2966 were moved out of Port Jefferson as of last week. I don't know what is going to happen to them in the near future? All I know is that they were moved to Arch Street shops. Are they going to be restored or cut up for scrap like all of the decommissioned sitting there?

They are scheduled for scrapping soon.

Are the M3s at Arch st. also going?

They currently have some flats with track materials in the former freight transload area, while the gons and diesel coaches are a little further back. I imagine they'll want to shuffle them around a bit to facilitate the work.

This looks like an opportunity for someone with ready cash to acquire a P72 coach for a price close to scrap value. If the railroad is going to scrap these two cars, then they may be willing to accept an unsolicited purchase offer for scrap value or a somewhat higher amount. They could even make some additional money with an additional services contract to complete an air brake system COTS and any other work required by the FRA for a new owner to move the car from LIRR to a new home, in freight service.

They are junk. Scrap. Let them die in pieces. They should take care of some others while they are at it..
