I don't know about the N8, but for what its worth, I have a photo looking down
onto an N5C, # 23086.  Although there's some snow on it, you can see that the
cupola has green sides and a black roof.  
Still, this may not but true across the board, even within the same class, as
paint schemes seem to vary.  Another N5C, # 23045, has a cupola with black,
not green, sides (and a different lettering layout).  Maybe there isn't one
standard answer.
