Brief excerpt from the link:
Metra locomotive 211’s new heritage design was inspired by the stainless-steel E-series passenger locomotives that ushered in the diesel era on the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad’s long-distance passenger trains in the 1940s and its Aurora-to-Chicago commuter operation in the 1950s.

I think it looks very good!

I was just looking at heritage locos on the NJT site.

Will this be something other agencies will do, such as MBTA, SEPTA, MTA?

NJT did it. I really hope SEPTA does it.
