How far back does Tuscan red with gold lettering go into N&W history?  Was
there ever a time when N&W passenger cars were lettered with anything other
than gold leaf or gold-colored paint, perhaps white for example?  Also,
does anyone have any information on passenger car painting and lettering
for the N&W predecessors i.e. N&W RR, AM&O etc.?  I realize this is
stretching Mr. Peabody's wayback machine a bit, but I also know we have a
bunch of extremely dedicated information archeologists in our group that
seem to be able to do the impossible when ferreting out N&W nuggets from
the masses of recorded history.
