The sticker was put on....unfortunately......in April or May of 2015 in Spencer NC as the restoration was being wrapped up. Thanks,Will Sadler

At this point it was the property of the museum.  Sent from my digital telegraph keyJim StapletonOn May 17, 2020, at 10:17, NW Modeling List <nw-modeling-list at nwhs.org> wrote:

      I’m no expert, but I surmise that in addition to the Spirit of Roanoke designation for the refurbished/restored 611, the actual black paint on the restored (excursion version) of the 611 was glossier than the paint on the engines while they were in service.  The available on-line videos of 611 certainly bear that out.
    I don't know, what do you think Bill?
