Well, since no one is paying attention... the details on the engine make it fairly certain that this is a recent shot:
1) The amount of unburned fuel being ejected from the stack indicates this is either the latest crap coal they have been burning, or the original soft coal from the early 90's.
2) The smokebox doesn't appear to be shiny, therefore I'd lean toward a flat gray, as opposed to the silver used previously.
3) The paint on the railings, specifically around the front of the smokebox is identical to the current scheme on the engine.
4) Finally, the paint scheme as applied to the number plate on the front times this to the post-2000 era. I have yet to see a pre-2000 picture with the plate being painted.
My original thought? They had her steamed on sunday, and since this was the first year with her back in service, they decided to have some fun and used her to bring the freight up from the interchange on Monday.
Wish I could have been there for that... getting pics down @ the interchange and along the line would have been AWESOME!
