Add on to "NWP Intel"

Hey guys,

Aparently NWPco will paint all of its motive power using 1922 as the template, which means recently purchesed Genset 2009, now 2011, will be in scarlet grey.

NWPCO says they will not be using the black widow scheme because they do not want to accossiate themselves with John Darling's NWPY of 1996-2001.
