C-54s North Weald

Anyone know what the future is for the C-54s at North Weald? Are they just parked up and left or are maintained and started up? Just a pure curiosity question as I haven't heard anything about them since they arrived X number of years ago.

Only info I can find is here from 2002.

They've just been put up for sale, coincidentally -

The planes are valued at around $400,000 each.

C54s at North Weald

I heard that they'd actually been up for sale more or less since they arrived here in 2002 and also, that the asking price of $400,000 per aircraft is way too high. Whatever the price though, wish I could afford to buy one and a hangar to keep it in. Saw these in November 2002, just after they arrived-I drove down from Manchester specially-and was rewarded with some November sunshine, so got some decent photos; here's one:
