my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
see also Image Library of NW2 Detail Shots.
SSW received two NW2's 1050-1051 in May of 1949, and another two 1052-1053 in November 1949. These came in SSW's Confederate Gray and Epaulet Yellow paint, subsequently painted in SSW's orange 'bow wave' on black. All had 6 louvered doors, with a 12" gap for lettering; when delivered they had just the Cotton Belt logo on the cabside, when repainted into the SSW orange and black scheme, 12" Cotton Belt was applied between the louvers, with the roadnumber on the cabside and a Cotton Belt logo in the orange at the bottom of the cab. As they lasted until 1968, perhaps they were repainted in SP scarlet and gray.
The first two SSW units were traded in June 1969 and the last two in May 1969 against SW1500's and scrapped.
