      Does anybody know what paint scheme or colors engines Tahoe and the Glenbrook were wearing at the time of their retirement from the Lake Tahoe Railway & Transportation Company in 1926?

      Thanks, Jeff

        Based on photos, (several available at www.pacificng.com) it appears that LTR&T Co is using a
        paint style similar to SP’s. Since two of the engines were leased from SP, and they connected
        with them at Truckee they would have been familiar with the style.

        If so, Black engine; domes, frame, cylinders, drivers, tender and frame all black, with a Russia
        iron boiler jacket, and again, from photos, likely brass boiler bands and polished brass cylinder
        covers, and in some photos it looks like they have retained the brass nosing on the running
        boards.

        The smoke box is either graphite or aluminum (probably a lighter toned graphite)

        Lettering in white… large number on Tender, number on sand dome, “L. T. Ry. & T. Co.” on cab.
        It is possible that the top of the tender tank, and top of running boards are freight car color
        The driving rods and cross heads look to be polished steel.
