After a little bit of time on Google, it looks like Great Lakes Steel has a history of rebuilding locomotives at NRE, which looks to be the case with this one - that cab and front end look modified to me. RR Picture Archives (which isn't always reliable) indicates that this units lineage is: NPBL 106; NREX 106; NREX 72, and that it's currently an SW1000 (formerly SW1200). It's a beautiful locomotive - nice catch.

Great shot. Will it ever be this clean again?

Wow, that's a gorgeous engine! The cab modification looks good on it, I think. Makes it look bigger.
