I would argue that RGS 455 would have “455” on the rear of the tender. I do not have a specific photo to point to but my rationale is as follows:

1. Other RGS equipment had the locomotive number on the rear of the tender (see Ridgway roundhouse views although with the caveat that K-27s were in stall 4 & 5 with pilot facing out).
2. RGS typically followed D&RGW practice therefore D&RGW K-27’s used the large numerals on the rear of the tender, I am not sure if this was post 1941 flying Rio Grande lettering practice but perhaps someone can post a D&RGW lettering diagram post 1941
3. RGS sister 461 has many photos showing the large “461” on the rear of the tender similar to other D&RGW K-27s
4. 455 when rebuilt after the wreck in 1943 had the tender lettered with the large “455” on the rear as seen in photos i.e. RGS Story VI Page 101.
