This unit carries small "LLPX" (Locomotive Leasing Partners, a joint EMD-Helm Leasing venture) lettering under the road number on the cab side. Judging by the headlights, this is a former L&N or SCL unit (not many lines ordered EMD hood units with nose-mounted headlights).

I still think this in one of the sharpest paint schemes around. Here is the 2314 in very fresh paint in service on the Burlington Northern in March 1993, just a month after the W&P began operations.
