Could somebody please confirm whether the TU-154's engine is located in the aft portion of the fuselage (downstream of the S-duct) like on the Boeing 727 and L-1011 or whether it is mounted above the fuselage in the tail (like on a DC-10)?

The former, google is your friend.

I just called a friend who was F/E on the Tu-154. He says the engine is near the tail cone. There is an S-Duct like in the 727.
He says in fact that all average non-pilot Russian know this because there was a famous "Airport" type movie in the USSR where a pilot cut through the rear bulkhead and into the S-duct from where he crawled out in flight. Of course totally impossible, but the guy was clearly shown crawling up the actual S-Duct during the movie.
