Harold: Jack at DP said that he did not get any orders for the N&W RS3.

He also did not announce the N&W RS3. Maybe that is why he did not get any

The versions that you listed are the best for the time periods.

For those who want a RS3 should orders as a few as 5 may be built.

Steve: When Division Point first announced that they would produce HO RS3
models Larry Hill and I went to the VTM and took photos of the N&W original
RS3 #300 and sent them to DP. I did not get a response to my request asking
that Jack produce the original N&W RS3 models. I did not give up. Upon
seeing your posting here I sent Jack an email offering to help in any way
the N&WHS could. Jack responded quickly stating that he could use our help
and that he wanted to produce the N&W RS3's in both the black and blue paint
schemes. He also stated that the N&W models would be in very limited
numbers. I am in the process of sending him photos that I have and will be
in Roanoke for the April Archive work session to collect more photos and
drawings as necessary.

For those of you on the list that are interested in the black paint version
for the RS3s, I want to go with the version that has the old N&W script
hearlds on both ends and under the cab windows. The blue version will have
the hamburger N&W hearlds. As most of you know the RS3's were first
numbered in the 90s and then several months later renumbered to 300 thru
307. When they were first renumbered they did not get the script N&W
hearlds. About a year or so later the eight RS3's got the full treatment
with script hearlds. Harold Davenport - N&WHS modeling committee

ALL modelers:

Anyone wanting a correct N&W RS3 Please contact me or your favorite brass

Division Point will do the correct phase III N&W RS3 as there is no good
model representing the N&W out there.

This is probably the only chance a N&W RS3 will get done.

I am sure our model committee will help provide the materials to Jack
Vansworth at Division Point to see this through.
