Logo mockup on one of the PH&W’s Alcos

A smaller logo

Happily, one of the prototype photos someone else took of 576 (I’m sure I took SOME, but most of my photos and film vanished in one move or another) is a classic sideview from across the tracks from the La Crosse depot, so I could just paint over the Milwaukee Road nameplate and paste in an appropriately-sized version of the Sabot-cat PH&W logo.

I’ll need to put a thin black border around the upper part of the logo to set the red off from the traction orange that the Milwaukee Road used for their nicest paint scheme.
