In case anyone's having trouble finding the pictures, they are here:
According to this KCS news release, twelve F40Cs are on lease to Kansas City Southern "to be used as center units in freight trains with a three-unit consist." This is a nine-month lease to KCS (and Tex Mex) until thirty new SD70ACe units are delivered later in 2005.

Sounds like an opportunity for some cool pictures.

I spotted what I believe to be the engines in question at the Gateway Western yard (E. St. Louis) last week. Didn't get a count on them, it was in the middle of the night and I was several tracks away from where they were located.

The following engines were at the Gateway Western (E. St. Louis) yard as of 0500 today.
601- NorthWest Suburban Mass Transit. Those in the know please enlighten me as to where/what this is.
The Northwest Suburban Mass Transit District (NWSMTD) was put together as a pre-RTA entity to fund the Milwaukee Road West Line commuter service between Chicago and Elgin. It also purchased 13 of the F40Cs and around 60 bi-level coachs.

Locomotives 600-612 all had the NWSMTD emblem near the nose. For whatever reason, Metra didn't paint over it on 601.
