Colors of the tugboat NORFOLK : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hello All,

I hope you can help me. I'm a marine artist in Southern NJ. I have a black and white photo of the Atlantic Coast Line tugboat NORFOLK, taken in Norfolk, VA on September 14, 1948. I know the stack is all black with three white rings near the top. Does anyone know the color of the deckhouse? It appears to be a very dark color. I paint highly detailed and accurate renditions of tugs from long ago, in color, when color photography did not exist. I'm trying to preserve as many of these boats as I can, for historys' sake. You can view my paintings on my site I would be happy to scan the photo and send it for your collection. Thanks for your help.
