The Bachmann Heavy Mountain is correct for the '30's era it represents. The N&W's lettering changed over the years, so you have to pick a year....

My son and I have aquired a 2-8-0 engine that is undecorated and would like to number it and also add the N&W name to it. Where would the name go? On the tender or or the cab?
This would also apply to a heavy mountain engine that we just got from Bachmann. The cab has 118 on it and in very small lettering it has Norfolk and Western. Is this correct?
The one reason I'm asking about the name placement is that all of our other steams have the name on the tender.
Thank you for your help.
