Back in July when this unit popped up as being transported to the UP, I had a few moments of time to do a short bit of research on this unit. This is what I found through connecting a couple of dots from online sources and came up with the following:
Built 02/1959 as part of Order Number 5592
Original Owner & No: NKP 814
Then NW 2814
Then NS 1484
Then DME 1484
Given the build date in Feb '59, it is a late GP9. GP18 construction started in December '59.
