NEFAN:
 
Yes, I well recall these pieces of hardware on the E-60's; if my memory services me correctly, these grills were also used for a time on ex-NH FL-9's out of GCT.
 
I remember hearing the grills referred to as "ghetto grills", to protect crews from debris hurled at the trains when passing through inner city areas.
 
Sad commentary on the times.......GREAT pic, btw!

I don't remember grills on the FL9's but I have pics of them on E8's, F40's and RDC's.
 
Here is #27 at New Haven Ct. I believe a Roger Williams RDC cab?
 
It looks ready for battle...
