The ELHS assisted on this project, and there actually was a painting diagram made up for the prototype units (attached)

And yes, there were a few on the shop floor when the order was cancelled. They were reportedly re-trucked and redirected to an L&N

Note that the paint diagram Atlas shows on their website is an older version. The actual model will have the correct typeface and
black roof.
