Thanks for the leads on the books.

Browsing through the archives, I wonder how were the PA Class coaches painted? Was Tuscan Red in use that early? Was the N&W lettering imitation gold?

Also, curious as to early power's paint schemes. Seems most late 19th century steam power was gaudy in nature, gold leafing, Russian Iron, etc. I know some of these engines I linked weren't directly N&W to begin with, but I wonder if they were as ornate as their western counterparts say in California and Nevada?
