All GM power! And the Opel's color is pretty close to the PC green on the commuter coaches!

Great Shot. If you look very closely around the rounded part of the nose of the E8A. you will see a very tiny tint of Brunswick Green. I have a copy of the official PC. Paint Order date Feb 1969. was sent to all the Engine Houses that did repainting and Back Shops. If you would like a copy let me know!
