    These appear to be "standard" gauge. Mining units? With home shop built cabs, possibly for some clearance consideration? More info, please!

    As always, interesting selections. Great Tokyo shot. Wasn't BNSF 9647 the unit that used to be called the "barf bonnet" by fans? I always thought it looked good and wished BNSF would have adopted the warbonnet style.

    The only additional info I have is that AK Steel operates a plant in Middletown, OH (halfway 'tween Cincy & Dayton).

    While I can't confirm these units were used at this plant, it seems likely.
