I would tend to consider them to be rebuilt or re-powered versions of the original model unless they were virtually new locomotives like most of the gensets.

 

 

 

They have a new builders plate and serial number. 

 
That's the standard that I use in calling them by their new model designation.

What are they??

Rebuilt 6-motor EMDs.  I believe the power on the somewhat TopGon-style Union Pacific dedicated tie trains are PU3200A-6.

Relco was acquired by WABTEC - I think at the beginning of this year.
