Haulin' Freight on the Oregon Pacific

Oregon Pacific SW1200RS #1202 pulls two cars through Sellwood on its way to Milwaukie, OR. The locomotive is a former CP Rail unit. 6/22/08.
Nice catch. Do you know if it is a lease unit? From either the Laurinburg & Southern (Their colors are about the same) or the parent compant Gulf Mobile & Ohio? Thanks
 
Thanks, M3rdrail. It's actually owned by OPR. They bought it from Larry's Truck Electric (LTEX) who got it from Canadian Pacific. The Red/White is the OPR's standard colors. My friend, Rod Cox, is a professional sign-painter and he lettered the locomotive by hand.
