Does anyone happen to know if the yellow GMC Hi-Rail located to the left of the engine house in the photo is a former Conrail truck?

At the Connecticut Eastern RR Museum in Willimantic, Ct we have one that was originally assembled for Conrail in Feb 1993 (Chasis Nov 1992) by Auto Truck using a GMC P-30 Chassis, Reading tool bed, Union City Cab & DMC Hi-Rails, and we are trying to find out if there were alternate locations for the unit number. Unfortunately our hood was replaced before we got it, and the only photo I have found of that series showed the truck number on the side of the hood.

I don't know for sure, but IIRC, this one came from the Falls Road, GVT. You'd have to check with them for anything before that.
