I noticed in both images that the consist is FA2/RS3/FB2/RS3 with another FA2 trailing in the #359 image. Was this something normal on the L&N or just coincidence?

The light gray/yellow nose L&N scheme wasn't too bad, but can't hold a candle to the original dark blue (black?) body with crème colored stripes trimmed in red. Can't find a photo of #314 in that scheme, but here is number 359 wearing it:

The L&N red herald on the nose is the clincher!

I agree that is the best scheme Les. There is also a more basic black/ dark blue with a round red emblem on the nose:

Hopefully IRM has a photo of #314 as delivered, but I'm sure it isn't the grey and yellow.

IIRC black was on freight units while blue was on passenger units.
