If the photo was taken in 1979, then maybe..
but the photo was taken in 2006, so definately not.
but yeah, that does like a blue E-unit..
(and the paint is also FAR too pristine and clean for it to be Conrail!
Conrail only had 3 E-units into the 1990's, the three for the "Office Car Special" train, and they are all accounted for.
No surviving Conrail F-unit is going look that clean in 2006..
so, it is a Blue cab unit, looks like an E.
but definately not Conrail..
30 years too late for that.
