You've trained him well. :)
The two cabooses are indeed Erie cars, but both are painted EL GMY. The
Dunmore is C191 and the bay-window is C333. The C191 appears to be wearing
its original EL paint, while the C333 is lacking in terms of correct
lettering. I've attached the most recent views I have of these cars, taken
in 2005 and 2006.
