After getting some more educated guesses on another forum as well, I decided to redo the roof. All paint is off an tomorrow RAL 7031, a dark gray-blue will be applied.
That roof is something! Build it twice, painted it twice...

Good plan, sometimes things take a few attempts to get right. One of my 0 Gauge Scratch Built Manning Wardles turned out to be a real pain, did the side Tanks about 4 times and still never got it right. Still in a box some 30 years later waiting to be completed!

It might have taken ages but the quality and care taken are very evident.

Have been looking at some pictures from my 2007 visit to Swiss Railways. Lo and behold a roof profile of a Steam Tram in Zurich Museum for you Henri. Different type of Loco clearly but at least you can get a close look at the Texture.
