Re: PC: RE:Bicentennial paint

U34CH's do not appear on any CR Roster. They are 100% owned by NJDOT and
used exclusively for NJ area commuter service and not intended for freight
service which is in the contract between NJDOT and the operating railroad.
Thee are Not lease units. Only 4151 (1776,4151,3351) was the only such unit
to carry the CR name and No logo only when repainted bicent scheme. The CR
name was painted over a year after the bicent when numbered back to 4151. A
close look on the side of 1776 will reveal the owners logo, NJDOT.
