 Western Sunset was originally in UP yellow, but I don't know if it was still yellow when relettered N&W. I would think that it was, but have no photograph to prove it. It was eventually painted blue, ran on the Pocahontas, and finally painted red and renamed "Hollins College."

 I am compiling a list of all N&W-lettered passenger cars inherited from the Wabash that were painted Union Pacific Armour Yellow for interline service and the City of St. Louis.  So far, I only have photographs of the following five cars:

N&W Dome #1613 (ex-WAB Dome #203 by Pullman)
N&W "National Colors” (Pullman Standard 6-4-6 Sleeper)N&W "National Homes” (Pullman Standard 6-4-6 Sleeper)N&W "National Unity” (Pullman Standard 6-4-6 Sleeper)
N&W Coach #1836 (ex-WAB #1429 by ACF)

Several additional Wabash cars were painted Armour Yellow.  But I do not have photographs that they were painted Armour Yellow in service on the N&W.
Does anybody know of other N&W cars painted Armour Yellow?  Photographs would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
