Are there any diagrams or documents available showing how painting and lettering was done on steam engines in the Clark Hungerford ("Simplified") era? Just "F-R-I-S-C-O" under the cab windows and large tender numerals. I'm particularly interested in which engines were lettered/numbered in Dulux gold (Or whatever the proper name is for the yellow imitation gold color). "Dulux" (pronounced "deluxe") was a DuPont trade mark. The Frisco may have used another/some other brand??
From my observation of photographs, I assume the yellow was on passenger engines and or/oil burners. I know 4501 and 1523 were two that were for sure done in yellow and also at least one 4-6-2 (It's pictured in the new "Rails Around MIssouri" book). Anyone have inormation or insights? From a modeling standpoint, these are the engines that coexisted with the first diesels. I do know that some of the pin striped engines also lasted into the late era.
