The reason it didn’t have ditchlights at the time is because they weren’t required by the FRA until by the end of 1997. Pictures of it (BNSF 1628) in 2003 show ditchlights were added.

This is in fact our NWP 1922. BNSF 1922 (currently) is a SD40-2. NWP 1922 was originally Northern Pacific 337, then Burlington Northern 1922, then BNSF 1628, then BUGX 337, and finally NWP (BUGX) 1922

According to Wikipedia it is the ex BNSF 1922

Well, this 1922 isn't the NWP 1922, is it?  I'm not a locomotive expert, but besides the cab window "appendage" that Richard points out, our 1922 has ditch lights.  Also, the number boards are in a completely different font.

Is there really a connection between the pictured BN engine and the (former?) NWP 1922?

WOW.  She looks real good in green and white.  But is with the cab window?
