On the first, I could be wrong, but I believe they are "NO SMOKING" signs, as you'll notice what appears to be a fuel truck. Probably because of the vapors in the air from the fuel. Just a guess though.

2nd, no real solid answer for that one, but most likely METRA was short of power for one reason or another, and was able to "borrow" an engine from UP to power this commuter train. And actually, that engine is an SD90/43MAC.
