That's amazing how she had effectively lost her top coat of paint by the time of that photo. Her Maroon can only be seen on parts of the cab.

Joe really made a nice catch, B&M maroon was bad about fading.  Think #803 was probably the most extreme instance.
The gold is actually the striping and accent color.  In the painting process, maroon was the last color applied.
Thanks for the interesting photo posting.
