If I am not mistaken in the CO timetable if you do a flight search the designators are something like this: 135/SRJ = ERJ135, 145/ERJ = ERJ145, ERX = ERJ145XR
However, I would assume there are instances on shorter hops where any of them can be substituted for one another...
I believe the interiors look the same...the safety cards are probably the same also. I had the pleasure of taking the 135 and 145 this summer DTW-CLE-LGA and also the CLE-DTW segment on the return and it had the same safety information cards on each aircraft... It was my first time on a regional jet and I really enjoyed it; its a little heavier on the turbulence (i guess i would assume not as heavy as a prop though; although I haven't ever been on a turboprop either).... I'll be taking my first ride on a CRJ in about a month and I'm looking forward to that also...

The ERJ's are good little "Hot Rods" definitely beats the old turboprop.
Just be sure and book and "A" seat, otherwise you get the feeling of being in a "hobit hole". Turbulence is more considerably more noticeable than mainline S80, A320, B737.
And of course on short flights,"the captain expects turbulence, keep your seat belt fastened and there will be no cabin service"

Luv767s, if you're scheduled for an ERJ 145, there's always a chance it could end up being an XRJ. I've seen them go CLE-DTW, usually as an equipment substitition for a regular old 145. All depends on the routing for a given day.
