 The "as-delivered" scheme photo you  need is on page 12 of my "Norolk & Western in Color Volume 1" However, it is after they had been renumbered in the 300 series. A note of caution: the N&W RS3's had dynamic brakes in the short hoods and because of dual controls, the cabs were longer than a standard RS3 cab. Cabs were the same size as cabs on the RS11's.

 I am looking for information that pertaining to the original four RS3 locomotives that the N&W reviewed in 1956.  These I believe were numbered 93, 94, 95 & 96. What was the paint scheme, all black with bronze gold lettering and numbers without the script N&W logos?  When I look a photos I see that there were grab irons on the long and short car bodies, with one that wraps around the side.  I have also found that the market lights appeared to resemble the circular ball type similar to what would be found on the boiler front of steam locomotives. I a looking for any help confirming what would apply to the original four RS3 locomotives. Thank you for your time and help.Larry Brown ________________________________________
