LSRC SD70's?

Hey guys, take a look at this picture (it's sweet!). Anyway, there a few SD70's in the mix. Is LSRC leasing SD70's?

According to the photo's description, the three SD70M-2s in the mix there are leased but not yet in service.

As far as I know they are stored for CITX along with some GP20Ds. They arrived some time in 2016.

The M-2s do have a lease signed on them. I still find it odd though, they're using the SD70M-2s while they have multiple engines in storage.
Also, all of the GP20Ds are gone.
