You're right, Frank - The Georgia Railroad owned neither model, but the Central did.

I didn't pick up on that.
You're absolutely correct.

I'm curious, Simon, since you're asking
about SW1 #2 and a S-2, are you looking for Georgia RR schemes? I
ask because, I don't think the GA had either. The Central of GA
had both, including a SW1 #2.

You would be interested,
I suppose, in the as-delivered scheme.
What you really need is a paint diagram. This would show
exactly the specifications of the stripes and their placement.
Unfortunately I do not have a diagram of this scheme.
Ron Dettmer, who worked in the mechanical department of the
Georgia Railroad (I was in the accounting department) might
have this information.
If he's on line, I hope he'll respond, If not, I'll try to
get in touch with him and find out what the specs are. (He
lives near Jacksonville, FL, I'm near Atlanta, GA.)

You are correct: I am in the UK. This makes
you both close (figuratively) and far
I have an SW1, which is intended to be number
2, and also an S2: number yet to be decided. My
modelling is set (mostly) in the late 1940s.
How early, Simon?
There were four switcher schemes - a
very early scheme of black (or blue)
with stripes, a slightly later one of
blue with a silver band, a solid blue
scheme with silver lettering, and a
final one of solid black with white
You don't say where you are, but your
use of the term "livery" for the US term
"paint scheme" suggests that you might
be in the UK.
How close am I?

Does anyone have any
measurements of the early
switcher livery, i.e. width
of the white stripes, and
location up from the deck,
and size and location of the
logo and the number and
