Came across this while going through image library. I'm assuming the color is black.

Maybe dark red as the body does not seem to have the same tone as the trucks and fuel tank.

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Early LV gas electrics and boxcabs were black with white lettering..My guess is it's flat black.Here's a link to a great site for LV diesel info..There are other threads on rolling stock,non revenue,ETC,on Railfan .net...

This is one of the earliest diesel schemes they used. Paint is black; however I don't know if the lettering is white or aluminum. After it's been out in the sun for a while you probably can't tell. I believe LV steam from this time had aluminum lettering.

Gary,Cornell Red with black stripes was actually the third color scheme LV used.Their second scheme after the black was a wild red/gray/black/yellow color scheme that was only used on their earliest switchers.It was also used on the as delivered 44 tonners.
 Hard to believe they went from black to this,LOL!!

  EMD used a lot of Semi-Gloss Black in the 30s and 40s.
  the Erie FTs were delivered in Semi-Gloss black,later repainted in Gloss Black.
  LV could be Semi-Gloss Black,or a dark shade of Red,this one is hard to tell
  by the picture shown ??

 Okay,should have looked there in the first place..The LV was absolutely insane with their paint schemes,they had so many variations,there's actually a book on it,by Carl Steckler.
  According to the book,this scheme was black,no mention of gloss,semi,ETC,with silver,or "Aluminum Leaf" lettering & numbers..This scheme is called "Style #1"..
    In the book,there are FIFTY TWO styles!!!! And,oh,yeah,those were regular,in service paint jobs..There were even more experimental schemes that were actually put on locomotives that only lasted a few weeks...
