Southern Railway Streamlined Ps-4 1380
Author: Railroader76

Hello, I have a question about the Southern Railway streamlined Ps-4 that was used for service on the Tennessean passenger train.  Precision Scale imports a very nice HO version of this model, and it looks great.  However, I'm trying to determine why this model has a yellow band where the nose cone meets the boiler.  From the prototype images I've seen, it appears that this interface is either green or steel color.  I haven't been able to locate a prototype image with the yellow band in this location.

Does anyone know whether 1380 had the yellow band where the nose cone meets the boiler at any time during its service life?

Thanks!

From the photo below (Atlanta 9-1-47, RJ Foster) it appears that the band is the same metallic color as the skirt on the running board.  Unfortunately this doesn't actually prove anything and I think we know how unreliable it is to determine color from a b&w photo.

The one in Smithsonian looks better, in my humble opinion.

Otto Kuhler thought that Southern Railway No. 1380 was his best design and also said that he never got paid for it.
