No! They were all black as delivered. The yellow handrails came later.

Subject: N Scale GP18 question
Hi, I’m new to the list—wasn’t sure if this was a modeling or a prototype question, but since modeling is the intent, I’ll put it here.
I have a LifeLike GP18 in N Scale, one of the older ones, that is number 923, painted for N&W in the all-black with yellow letters scheme. My question is this: were any of the handrails painted yellow when the unit was new? I have looked for a color photo of this particular locomotive online to no avail. The model came modeled in all-black, but looking at other photos of GP18s, it looks like the end handrails were painted yellow. I’d like to fix that on my model if that’s the case.
