Orange Blossom special Mountain engine : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I would like to model the orange blossom special train from 1937. The engine will be a Mountain locomotive numbered #249. I have seen black and white pictures of this engine. Some parts of the engine look like they were painted silver. Does anyone know what parts are silver. Was the rest of the engine black or another color. Also what would be a normal consist be for this train. Was it all a pullman train. Were all cars colored pullman green with gold lettering. I would like to run the premier steam locomotive that was used just before the 1938 silver meteor diesel. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Jim
