Why do the CPTM trains have two different liveries?

Are some lines operated by the city and other lines operated by the SP state government?

There are some more liveries actually... but the two main ones (blue and red) are the old one (blue from 1997 to 2009) and red (2009-).

Both Metro and CPTM are managed by the state government, though there are technicall free state-owned companies (autarquias) which can receive influences and funds from all spheres (and the Federal government and the City do contribute to them, in minor amouts, over 95% of the funds are from the State)

Yes they were CAF Renfe trains running local and intercity lines and were brought here in 1999. CAF is actually building a train factory in Sao Paulo state to meet the huge demand for new trains throughout the country. Only between 2007 and 2010 Sao Paulo alone bought over 110 trains for the Metro and CPTM systems.

Thanks! I've seen that a lot of new trains in Sao Paulo are from CAF, it's good news for the Spanish company to start producing also in Brazil. It shows how huge the demand is,
