This was a pleasant surprise on the drive home from work! BNSF's Provo-Denver manifest was tied down on the siding at Leyden. With a Warbonnet on the point and a very rare Canadian Pacific unit second out, it was a colorful consist. Notice anything odd about the front of the Warbonnet?

Not only has the nose door been changed out but the entire unit has had the handrails painted orange on both ends.

Yep, you nailed it Mark. Since parts between like models of engines are interchangeable, this is not as uncommon as you might think, particularly on BNSF where there is such a sea of paint schemes!

The door is painted orange instead of red like the rest of the unit.
