This subject comes up every few months. It seems to 
stem from old painting diagrams that specify DGLE. 
However, such diagrams often have no relationship to 

The one thing that's missing is an actual COLOR 
picture of a PC loco in DGLE that isn't a paintout. 
(Painting over PRR heralds and applying worms.)

Until such picture appears, I remain skeptical.
