Many fantasticlly talented  painters do generic work.  I just saw this item 
on ebay again and thought of both the paint and decal questions on the list 
now.  If you find a painter make sure you and he both know the paint scheme 
you want.

This appears to be a very nice paint job.  It is wrong .  The decals are 
applied wrong and the graphite paint application is wrong for the number 
they used.   The painter did not know the N&W.  A potentially $1,000.00 
locomotive with a $200.00 paint job needs another $200.00 paint job. The 
trains and stuff consigner who is selling this has no clue as to why it has 
not sold even though it has been relisted several times.
