Numbers for steam

If you are modeling any time after 1940, put the road name on the tender. As
to number, that depends on the size of the 2-8-0 you have. I assume,
however, that it is not a small one, which would make numbers 6 & 7
appropriate. The larger N&W 2-8-0's were numbered between 673 and 949. Jim

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.
