Sean:  I believe that the above photo was taken at:

Mid America Car, Inc.
Kansas City, Missouri

In this photo you can see 1501 and part of the Mid America sign:

Where is the shop this was taken in?

Well hello J.P.?Morgan?
Long time no see.
I've not been out photo documenting for a while.
I'll sure be out there when this one comes to town.

My suspicion is since this is still in the pain booth, the number board has been removed, plus Union Pacific modified these heavily so a lot changed.

To elaborate on my suspicions from earlier regarding these being different locos, notice how the cab is not consistent with the typical SP switcher setup (lack of number boards plus horn placement), yet the other photo shows what is obviously the nose of a former SP unit with the headlight arrangement.

If this was posted April 1 I would be laughing.  Otherwise waste of time.

Wow whoever did this is really good at Photoshop you can barely see the edit lines. Great shadow and airbrushing work.
