It all depends on when the building was painted, as N&W went through several color schemes during the late '40's and the '50's. The reddish brown is earlier, and the green is later.

Guys - in many of the photos in the various reference works it seems the roofs of maintenance and small operating facilities are some shade of red/maroon?  I always thought they were green, and the buildings with green trim around the windows, doors, etc.  It seems as though the predominant color was white for the sills and jambs.

Anybody help me out here?  Thanks!
