Question about the latest Lionel NKP Berkshires

Product number I will be giving is refereeing to 765 as the 2018 rendition. This is also the guide anyone that is trying to help.  Product number: 6-84687

 

I saw a YouTube video of this locomotive in action.  The one thing I noticed was when the engine was moving and you viewed it from the left side of the locomotive, The number on the cab look like it was off centered. 

Does anybody have a photo of any of the new Nickel Plate Rd, Berks on the left aide of the cab? I want to make sure my eyes aren’t going bad.

 

thank you for your help.

the Lionel number is oversize so rather than being able to fit over the top to the vent, they decided to accept the error and slide the number a bit to the rear.

the only problem with Tom's #777 is that Connie Miracle cannot produce graphics small enough for the data block, but the cab number is precise.

Lionel also obviously misplaced the data block lettering.

Except, your photos are of the Engineer's side.

i'm working on some rub-on graphics for #753 data block.
the number is still positioned over the wind deflector.
the cab number should be centered on the cab, not the cab window.

of the on-hand photos i had of #765 the engineer side was just a bit more clear.
(ignore the red arrow... i was trying to point out the stoker engine for someone)
