Nice set of images.  Never shot that unit.

Judging by the rust on the rail I'd say it is not used very often.  The paint sure has held up well.

Up through the late 1990's on the Cape Cod Railway at least, this unit still had GM&O's trademark poling pockets on the front pilot.  Looks like the Historic St. Marys Railway that had it next gave it a whole new front pilot, and took off the MBTA-era "bug-eye" red marker lights as well.
