Sealed Beam Headlight on K2a 137

I got the following question from Rob McGonigal, Editor, Classic Trains magazine:

"I just ran across an N&W company photo of streamlined
4-8-2 137 in the lubratorium at (so it says on the back of the print)
Williamson. It shows two workmen, one on a ladder "adjusting" the
engine's headlight, which is a twin-sealed-beam type (bulbs
side-by-side); the other is on the ground holding what looks like the
old single-bulb reflector. Seems to be a staged photo showing the
application of a new headlight to the 137. The print is undated, but I'd
guess first half of the 1950s."

I went through the Archives database, but didn't find a reference.  Anyone know anything about this?
