NW 1776 (N&W Drawing # 38-I-100 dated Feb 4, 1974) - Looking from a 0 degrees angle at the top of the locomotive all the visible surfaces are black but in "Carbody Detail showing area of Roof to be Painted Black" there is a masking line around the entire top of the locomotive limiting/stopping the black at the upper edge of the 90 degree radius that transitions between the horizontal top of the locomotive to the vertical sides. In other words when looking at the sides or ends of the locomotive from ground level you would not see the black roof....only the red or blue paint on the sides.

> I have a full set of N&W's official drawings for painting 1776 (N&W Drawing # 38-I-100 dated Feb 4, 1974) that were given to me by mechanical department friends in Brewster, OH during the 1970's (along with a complete set of NW-Black paint scheme drawings for N&W diesels).........Per these official drawings the entire roof is black including the top of the high short hood. .....But be sure to properly match the shade of black N&W used.........Dupont 826 67606U Poly-urethane.............. as listed on the drawing. You must use the right shade of N&W black......

>> As the locomotive sits now in VTM, from my pictures taken Sept. 2013 only the long hood roof is black. The Cab and short high hood appear to be blue. Aa I look harder the antenna on the short hood appears black, So?
