National Air Cargo is getting them but I don't know if they are going to operate them or not. They are being delivered but put into storage I think. It seems like it could be a very versatile aircraft if it is marketed to the right people.
The 757 combi is designed to replace the DC-8-62 combi, since it can do essentially the exact same job but is much more modern and fuel efficient.
The market for combi operations is very limited, but there are other 757 combis being used for NATO and military purposes - very different missions from the PCF/PF/SF missions - plus a single one at Royal Nepal that was a factory product and not a conversion and is unrelated to these later developments.
