Aha, thanks! Tracking that down was more energy than I wanted to spend with my health the mess it is.
Something which just popped in to memory and could be answered by a book in the other room is that I want to remember that the Louisville & Nashville, L&N, had a train they ran in cooperation with PRR and it at least sometimes used a streamlined steamer painted tuscan red & that there were some L&N lettered passenger cars in tuscan.
Think it went from maybe Chicago to the Gulf coast?
Okay, this I'm going to use up the energy to go look for.

Okay, found it. A few decades back I modeled the L&N in N scale.
And my memory wasn't perfect, but was getting there!
Page 200, Louisville & Nashville Passenger Trains by TLC Publishing, 1999. L&N ran a joint service with PRR from New York to "Louisville/Nashville/Memphis" and for that they painted some of the River series 10-6 sleepers in PRR tuscan with PRR style lettering. Also a few corrugated side cars for the NYC to New Orleans Crescent.
Pages 130 & 131 show L&N semi-streamlined 4-6-2 number 295 (built 1925 as a one-off) in tuscan with a maroon band in mid 1940s to match consist for a train named South Wind where L&N hauled the Nashville to Birmingham segment.

So, there are a couple possibilities for models.

I had one of those "mind click moments"! I said "Oh! Yes! The South Wind. I remember reading about that train in Great Trains East." Can you believe it? I found pics of a model somebody made out of Legos!

Hey, that is a good memory!

Interesting that upper boiler jacketing is black, that's different from the image by W. N. Clark that's in the L&NHS Collection: note this detail sample from it;

Becky and Southwest, nice job tracking down Tucson streamliners! Here are some interesting DGLE examples. First, a photo of a fresh DGLE paint job.



In this next photo the closer locomotive has a sort of intermediate DGLE and the locomotive in the back has a faded DGLE coat. Also note that in this photo the smokeboxes are clearly a dark color as opposed to a light color.

460 there is one handsome locomotive. The PRR's E6s class Atlantics are one of my favorite steamers. Oh, going back to that Pennsy Power book, it has an account of an interview with an engineer on those. He reports that they were "the nicest hand fired engines" he ever drove and were seay on the fuel and water. They were nicknamed "Speed Queens" They were smooth riding, except ... somewhere around 70 mph they developed what the engineer called 'a tipsy side to side motion which sometimes scared crews', and that may be a direct quote but I'm not going to go dig out the book and check right now. Anyway, the best way to end that tipsy side to side motion ... go faster and would stop. Must have been some kind of harmonic thing.
As far as I've been able to discover it wasn't reported and maybe not even known what the ultimate possible top speed of those 4-4-2 was.
