That's correct. The only FA/FB-2s to receive GMY paint were (and their scheme variations):
FB2 7362 - only EL B-unit of any sort to wear full "ERIE LACKAWANNA" lettering (not counting the merger patch jobs)
FA2 7381 - "standard" later cab unit scheme
FA2 7391 - "early" cab unit scheme with maroon lettering
FB2 7393 - "standard" B-unit scheme
