Front view showing extended cab face and cab roof modifications. Barely visible over the engineer's side front window, below the roof extension, is the conduit running out of the cab face and up to the EOT antenna. Note that the horizontal red/yellow stripe is several inches too low, as per the prototype. The standard IAIS scheme has the top yellow stripe falling on the bottom edge of the cab side windows.

Roof view showing air filter modifications and cab roof detail. IAIS 600 started life with a squared air filter box such as that provided with the Atlas GP38, but received roof modifications and was retrofitted with the newer angled-style box in 1999 after an electrical fire. It was this work that led to the unit being repainted by an outside contractor, and it's at that time it received the OLS logo and incorrect low stripes.
