Hope this link works to Farcebook. Credit Valley Railway's FB page has posted around a dozen photos of CP locos repainted into Canadian military services liveries.

CBC article on how they concealed the paint schemes until the unveiling:

It is possible with the SD90 that Athearn announced in the spring that they could also continue on to do the SD70ACU, and with collectible paint schemes like these I would suspect that has become even more likely.
