The Houston Railroad Museum has sister engine 510. Here's the museum's page about it. No mention of 509. 509 is not listed on the list of survivors at The Baldwin Diesel Zone.

For the record, the correct Baldwin model designation for 509 & 510 is DS-4-4-750
Diesel Switcher
4 total axles
4 powered axles
750 horsepower
