-BM 335-337 were purchased 1984/01 but were placed in service with their CR numbers. They ran as BM 3244, BM 3249, BM 3258 until 1984/07 when they were renumbered 335, 336, 337 respectively.
-BM 338-342 were purchased 1984/07.
Just to clarify a couple things here: 335-337 were leased in February 1984 and purchased in July, May, & June 1984, respectively. The 338-342 were leased in July 1984 and not purchased until the 1st Quarter if 1985. This is why they were not promptly renumbered. All units previously owned by Itel and trusted to CR and its predecessors for 15 years.
Most were CR Blue except 328-332-335-337-338-340-341, which were PC Black. Most (but not all) units started to receive Guilford Phase II Paint at Oneonta during the summer of 1987.
And one more note: Units 3230-3238-3240-3242-3243-3250-3251-3252-3256 were stored by Guilford at Colonie on behalf of Itel during 1984 and never purchased by Guilford.
