Default Norfolk Southern Paint Scheme Differences

I was wondering what the difference is between the Norfolk Southern locomotives that have black above the cab windows on the front and the ones that have white above the front cab windows.

The engines with the white paint above the windows are painted in Norfolk Southern's latest paint scheme, which was introduced in late 2002. Engines with solid black in the front window area are painted in the older scheme (which is pretty much the same one NS used throughout their first 20 years with only a few changes). Other differences between the two schemes include a solid frame stripe on the newer one compared to a dashed stripe or sometimes no stripe at all of the older one (Though this is being changed as many engines in the old scheme are receiving solid frame stripes now). Also, engines in the newer scheme have NS' Horsehead logo, while the older scheme featured the previous NS logo.
