Remarks & Notes 
One of Conrail’s former Erie/EL E8’s escaped the fate of its roster mates, who gave up their prime movers to the DeWitt Geep RS3 re-engine program. Shortly after the consolidation, Conrail’s management elected to institute a business train, and the motive power department chose former Erie/EL 833 to be the streamlined face of the corporate conveyance. Several office cars and the 4022 emerged from the paint shop in Conrail blue, and remained that way until the office car train was expanded and painted dark Pullman green in the early 1980’s. Between OCS assignments, the 4022 frequently spent time on the New York & Long branch commuter line in New Jersey. Here the blue streamliner descends the ramp to the South Amboy engine house.
