S1 and S1a operation on the N&W

I have modified a Proto 0-8-0 to a S1 already using various PSC parts and plastic. I am looking to convert another one I have to a S1a but this will require building a new tender.

<BR>First, does anyone know the exact road numbers of the S1a's used at Williamson? I model Williamson in HO, so my options for a S1a would be either the IHC or the Proto 2000 0-8-0. What might be easier for a kitbash, or to run with just renumbering (The IHC 0-8-0 being available in N&W lettering)<BR>
