No, not the US Border Guard in action.

GE E60C-2s and an older E60C (single end cab)
hauling coal empties on the Black Mesa & Lake Powell RR,
one of the few overhead electric systems in the US.

When first built, this was the highest voltage overhead catenary in the world, at 50KV.

BM&LPRR acquired the locos from the former Mexican State RR,
after the cutback of their planned electrification programme.
