I know that the C&S and the Denver tried using their E units for freight service over the "Joint Line" between Denver and Pueblo and it was a dismal failure. The were soon traded in for C&S SD40s. Should have stuck them on the Joint lines between Dallas and Houston here in Texas. Probably would have fared better. Also they did not change the gearing to freight gearing. I read that a lot of traction motors and generators got fried on the Palmer Lake grade.
Modeling the Fort Worth & Denver in N scale.

How often did the Burlington use passenger E units in freight service? I remember seeing one such occurrence in 1966 or 1967 in Illinois from a DZ dome. The train the two units pulled consisted of farm equipment on flat cars, so it was probably not too heavy
