How Many Loco "Builder's Cards" Did N&W Publish?

We have all seen those 4 x 10" cards that the N&W published, with photos of
its engines.  Some had statistics printed on the back.  Some were
prints and some were printed by "letter press" (a screened image done on a
printing press.)

Has anyone ever catalogued how many of these "builder's cards" were issued?

Here's a list of what I have.  Does anyone know if there were more?

I have one of M Class 475 that, if memory serves, I got with some other
stuff from the N&W PR Dept back in the late 50's.  It's all I have left that
they sent.  As far as I know, this is a photograph, but it has the specs on
the back so I guess it was involved in some printing process.  It has been
in a double side frame for many years so you can read the specs.  I treasure
the thing, but you wouldn't know it because it hangs in my garage.

That's one more you can add to the list anyway.
