no longer self propelled , for power they have a generator, they get pulled with locomotives.

I see the orange bonnet is a nod to the gray & orange days.

Is that color orange spot on ?

BSH and Everyone: M3 Sandite Cars E775 and E932 front ends are the burnt orange and white
colors of the Texas Longhorns football team. From what I heard mentioned there was a LIRR
manager or employee either from Texas or a big fan of U.T. that these colors are meant for.
I never realized that E775 has a pair of bullhorns displayed under the center headlight...

9901-9902 (now E901-E902) have entered service - the front ends are painted dark blue with a
bright yellow stripe - making them stand out (as E775 and E932 do) among other M3 cars.

Man, Long Island is about as different from Texas as you can get. Kinda funny, kinda weird. If you love Texas, LI isn't the place to be.
