Colours of Mumbai Suburban
I lived and worked in Mumbai for almost 9 years during which time I was a regular user of the suburban services on WR and CR. There used to be many colourful rake liveries, most of which are being phased out in favour of the standard purple-and-white (which MoR seems to have adopted as the future standard throughout India - notwithstanding how dirty white becomes in India). Also many older AC-DC rakes are being phased out as WR is now totally AC-fied.
therefore decided to start a thread where I will post the different colour schemes spotted by me. Some photos may be grainy since they were taken by my (first) 1 MP mobile camera.
Please feel free to contribute!
Here is a WR Churchgate bound slow local taken at Bandra - sporting an unusual blue scheme - to my knowledge only one of its kind.

This is one of two "modern" EMUs on WR that preceded the now-common ICF rakes. Like those rakes, it has all-steel interiors and large windows. Sort of an experiment perhaps. WR used to run it as a Virar fast - and I saw it as recently as 2 years ago.

A chocolate coloured Churchgate-slow on WR - seen at Bandra. Once common these were mostly painted green and then phased out (except a few on the Andheri-harbour line).

While WR no longer has chocolate-liveried EMUs, the larger CR continues to run them on both the harbour and main lines. Here is a Khopoli bound EMU at Mumbai CSTM sporting the chocolate livery scheme

Old and new WR rakes outside Mahalaxmi yard. There are still a few EMUs sporting the silver-and-red colour scheme of WR

One-time staple colour scheme of WR - these silver-and-red rakes are quite likely repainted from their earlier green or chocolate. I believe a few are still around today.
