Can anyone provide documentation about what color the earlier lettering schemes 
were?  White? Gold?

I'm referring of course to the cab side lettering scheme for one.

The scheme with a larger "N" and "W" like Abram provided a photo of is second.

The only other major scheme I can think of would be the USRA scheme.

Were there any other steam era schemes in the 20th century that I don't know about?
