To my eyes, it looks like the cab numbers were selectively sharpened in post processing. With a pan shot, as you get further away from the sweet spot (the numberboards on the nose), everything should get softer and softer the further you go. The cab windows above the numbers is soft, as well as the battery box and the second and third axles of the lead truck directly under the numbers. That's why the semi-sharp cab numbers stick out so much to me.
