Yet so many just say it's CN 6924, or CN 6122, etc.

So, EJ&E will still be EJE as in the latest repaint of the 668, right? Now,under the heading of Locomotive Details should it be Canadian National Railway or Elgin, Joliet & Eastern Railway, I understood that when CN took over they are still operating as the EJ&E the way the agreement was done, in the examples below which one is right? (I suppose I should be dropping the ampersand on the Locomotive number)
