Blanking Out Windows on Alco RS3s : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Planning on modeling Southern's RS3s in the early-to-mid 70s. I have noticed in some pictures the top four windows of the cab appeared to be 'blanked out'. Were they, or are they just dirty windows?

They were blanked out with metal plating instead of glass.
