I certainly think they look better. What really captures the look for me are the funnel like spark arrestors on the branchline engines, as seen with this fantastic picture of Abingdon 4-8-0 396. One thing I never noticed were the stars on the front of the cylinders. Nice touch.

Out of curiosity, what happened to 475's larger tender?

In her final years on the N&W, 475 served as a ceremonial engine, "backdated" with a fake diamond stack, box headlight, and smaller tender. I would imagine the larger tender ended up behind another engine, more than likely one that didn't make it.

Here’s a link with a few pictures of 475 around Bristol in 1960

And here’s another link to an older discussion that includes 475 sitting on the deadline with the “lost engines of Roanoke” in the early 1960’s

I happen to like the high headlight, but apparently I'm in the minority.
