Probably known to many - but not by me - is the conundrum of "Norfolk &
Western" vs "Norfolk and Western" lettering on HW passenger cars Which came
first and when was the change made - or were they used concurrently ?

Thanks in advance for your kind reply

Can anyone tell me approximately when the N&W began painting their passenger
cars in tuscan red paint and also what color did Pullman owned cars where
prior to the divestiture of much of Pullman's assets to individual roads? I
am trying to determine if some form of green paint (coach green, pullman
green, etc) were commonly used on the N&W's passenger trains during the 1940s,
prior to the arrival of the Budd sleeper cars.
