Can anyone identify the locomotive in this photo, taken today at the Amtrak station in Roanoke, VA?

Enjoy those while they are around.  One would have to think with scads of their own locomotives placed in storage over the last few weeks, including much newer (and more capable) SD70M-2s, these leasers will be returned ASAP.

All NS leasers are being returned once lease is up...

I'll be in Roanoke this summer.   I'm guessing that the Amtrak platform isn't really available to take photos/videos from during the day???   Or was this a last second grab shot and not enough time to get into position on the platform, trackside?

Depends upon the lease agreement(s)...

I honestly can't see them sticking around too much longer.
