I saw one photo on George Elwood's NYC locomotive page

Hold everything! If you're referring to
http://gelwood.railfan.net/other/nyc/nyc1644s.jpg , that link is in error.
The shot is from my collection, and I assure you it was take in
Bellefontaine, OH in 1949. I have a shot of the same engine in 1969 and it
is in the cigar band stripe (and a rather worn cigar band at that). I
notified George Elwood of the link error this evening.
Check out the third and fourth unit in the consist pictured at
http://gelwood.railfan.net/other/nyc/nyc1615.jpg . They are still in the
lightning stripe, but the photo was taken in 1964. See also
http://gelwood.railfan.net/other/nyc/nyc1684.jpg for an A-B set in lightning
stripe on the point of a coal drag in 1964. So we can confirm that the
lightning striped F units were still around in 1964, but that's not to say
that they made it to 1968.
