I see they had some 0-8-0 steamers too.

A N&W expert would know if any of their 0-8-0's were USRA Yard Goats. Lionel made some great USRA Yard Goats scale and in Legacy. (I think mine is one of my favorite locos). If so, you could look into what is involved in changing the decals, or send it to a professional.

 

TM Terry, the N&W 0-8-0's were copies of several Chesapeake and Ohio C-16b that N&W received in 1950, and the C&O had a different design than the USRA. The Lionel model is fairly close but some modifications would be needed if one wanted it to be accurate. For N&W, they had the headlight centered on the smokebox, had the coal bunker built up, and I believe had a slightly different cab. Precision Scale Company has a lot of brass and plastic detail parts that can be added to a Lionel or other manufacturers 0-8-0 and it would look much closer to an N&W S1 or S1a.
