I believe it's a Portland Terminal paint scheme (homage to Maine Central).

Maybe Portland Oregon. The ones over here either looked like B&M\MEC diesels in black & red (which she had for a while) or black with a yellow nose.

Jeff Schumaker:
I've seen Portland Terminal photos with the yellow nose.

Gordon Cook:
I believe that B&M and MEC engines (and Portland Terminal) had a maroon body with gold stripes in the center paint scheme in the 40's and 50's. Check out Conway Scenic's engines 573 and 4268.

MNGRR No. 1 is maroon with an off white (maybe cream?) stripe.

James Patten:
So were repairs to #1 successful?

Wayne Laepple:
Easy way to answer the question. Is No. 1 still in the enginehouse? Is it still jacked up?
