The cab appears very similar to the design used on the Australian locomotives NRE has recently built. Complete with the white and red marker lights that are still in use down under.

There was a report elsewhere on the web that the first two locomotives to be delivered are re-worked demos built for the eventual Australian order.

Looks like a cross between a BQ23-7 and a 1990s EMD, two locomotives loathed by crews. Can't believe a preserved system would put that thing on their trains.

Let's remember that WP&Y is NOT a museum, and has no historical design obligations to meet.

In the back of my mind I am thinking about the D&S, who were apparently considering the same model, but I guess your statement applies to them as well. Yech.
