C30-7 question
Posted by Leo_Ames on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 10:40 AM

What am I seeing on the nose of this West Tennessee Railroad unit on page 49 of the July issue of Trains? Looks like a triangular opening where nose mounted headlights would've gone, with a white screen covering it. 

It can be seen online as well, such as this picture off rrpicturearchives.net that someone has posted.

Looks more like a sticker of sorts than an opening to me. Strange.

It's just a sticker or decal, nothing more.

Thanks guys.

Makes more sense than having the nose open to the elements.
