Yes. It was previously Chicago Northwestern 4160. 4160 was originally built for the Rock Island as their 4506 (I probably gave the wrong number, but still).

Would be neat to see a group photo of all the folks who worked on the repaint of RI GP7 4506, if not here then in Rail & Wire. Jamie and crew just nailed that "Rock" paint scheme. Fantastic and jaw-dropping paint work and attention to detail, as always.
