Now these next two are a bit of a surprise to me. The first with a black (black, really?) splashboard, but with a hint of a calliope showing? I'm sorry the picture resolution is so bad, it's from a postcard, maybe somebody has the postcard...I'm thinking 1960, the first calliope year...

The second picture below looks really recent but my guess is 1961 or '62, and the discovery of the right shade of red paint was a stroke of genius. Notice no dual portholes in the splashboard, simplier script on the signboard, no calliope fru-fru, still white doors and windows...
