Hmm......toughy, Speed Lettering.....
 
Black River or Black River or BRW. I don't know...they look fine the way they are now. But, well, I don't know...60 would definetaly not win my vote for SPEED LETTERING. For the diesels, like I've said I dunno. 'twould look kinda cool! maybe...

Here's an idea:  How about a Pennsy Keystone with the "B" and the "R" next to each other, with the "W" poking through them?

As many as the paying customers want.  In August, we did 3 runbys.
 
How many runby's do you want?

Ok, here's a question. When the BR&W brought the 57 (RS-1) from the NH&I, what color did they paint it? (I say 'brought' as it was never owend by the NH&I, but a volunteer)
 
 I know when it was at NH&I it wore a very dark blue with the yellow stripe, front and rear striping on the hood and standard lettering across the top of the hood. I had thought that BR&W either left it blue or painted it black as it is now on East Penn?
 
The reason I ask this, is that Altas has brought out 2 examples of the BR&W RS units in HO...one painted in the BRW 211 scheme, the other in the Black River #57 scheme, but it wears the same Green Paint the other engines wore in the 70's/80's...and has a silver roof, which I could swear it was painted black and had a red roof on the BR&W.
 
Who knows about this?

BRW at first painted it green with yellow trim, in keeping with their color scheme at the time.   Later it was painted Black with yellow trim, labeled simply "Black River" with the number 57 under the cab in a Great Western-inspired diamond, and with a red roof.   It wore this scheme until sold.

Actually I was thinking of another engine that is operational.
But your Answers are good too.  BTW I did not know the mack was that old.

OK. Let's go over this again to see if we have the rules right. It has to be an operational piece of motive power. Brw has to own it.  It is older than # 60. It's not 4666, (good guess, I think most people don't know Brw no longer owns it), and it's not Mack #1 since it does not run. I really hope you are not looking for us to answer- The Turtle- that is another story of it's own. Since you said you were thinking of another engine, I don't know.

Two things  
 
One. the answer is the Delaware Turtle built 1930 and runs, what do you mean "The Turtle- that is another story of it's own. "
 
Secondly, I thought (or asumed rather ) that 4666 was never owned by the brw was it
