Today's report from Clybourn station:

F40 #172 is sparkling clean - even the top. I have no idea how the top got clean, it looks like a barn queen from IRM it's so shiny. Some other clean F40's passed, but were obviously run through a was rack, as the top wasn't clean.

That particular locomotive was just rebuilt, so it's probably got a brand-new paint job.
