I am VERY skeptical about this. I suppose it's 
possible, but it's far more likely that the photo 
color has altered over time, or the person doesn't 
actually have the photo on hand, and he's relying on a 
faulty memory.

Claims like this pop up from time to time, and if you 
press them, they usually prove false. (Or at least 
don't show any positive proof.) A couple of years ago, 
a guy on the model railroad newsgroup swore up, down 
and sideways that Amtrak has Genesis B units. He was 
quite insistent, so I humored him. I did a thorough 
web search, and asked on a couple of newsgroups. No B 
units. When I asked him why there's no evidence, the 
best he could come up with was that his friend swears 
he saw one.

So, unless there's clear proof, I'm doubting it.
