CR Electrics painted blue

Postby park » Thu Apr 20, 2017 6:20 pm

I am trying to get a comprehensive list of CR E33's and E44's receiving blue paint.

I have the following all in blue. Any conflicts, additions or subtractions would be appreciated

E33's in blue: 4601, 4603-4608 & 4610 The only two not verified with blue paint are 4602 and 4609
E44's in blue: 4401, 4403-4410, 4412-4416, 4419-4429, 4434, 4453, 4456, 4459 & 4461-4465

Another question about the E-44. Supposedly they were built with the capability of operating in m.u. with diesels (though only as lead units: they could "tell" a diesel what to do, but couldn't "take orders" from one). QUESTION: was this capability ever used in practice?
