Actually they have two. 211 (the one currently in service) is ex-SP. 212 is currently being renumbered to 2035 and will enter service very, very soon (having been completely re-wired and other work) is ex-NYC 2035.

They could have disquised it as an S-4 or T-6 (don't give me the krap about how this-n-dat has to be done). Altzy, they're just playing a game with the rail[fan] community :-D
I wonder if a Cargill employee went to work one day back then and realized that their locomotive was gone? So it was here yesterday... Maybe it'll show up tomorrow?
