When did these CB/IR units come off the roster and what was their final disposition? On the modeling side of things, is the Bachman 44ton truck the same as on these units?

One of the two subclasses ended up on BAR, but I am not home, so I can't look it up now.

Since they were both GE designs, of about the same vintage, for similar service (low speed, switching: the DEY-2 was like the 44-tonner in having double-reduction gearing), the trucks are probably similar in principle and appearance, but I doubt they would be identical: the DEY-2 was a (roughly) 100 ton locomotive, the 44-tonner a ... 44-ton one.
