The number boards on the cab didn't give it away? Yes, those are both former Southern Pacific units.

i have NO idea what an sp numberboard looked like.  the "off centered" headlight was my clue but i was not 100% sure to say it was an ex-sp motor.......

The number boards on all Southern Pacific and Cotton Belt SW1500's was mounted on the front of the cab above the windows since the SP specified headlights and Gyralites took up all of the available space on the front of the carbody above the radiator. The number boards remained in this location even after the Gyralites had been removed.
The Southern Pacific/Cotton Belt units are the only units built with the cab mounted number boards.
