Hello Richard,
 
many thanks. With your reply I did some googling and found this:
 
https://brasstrains.com/classic/Product/Detail/033503/HO-CCI-NH-New-Haven-Insulated-Box-Car-45071
 
Apparently what you are speaking about. 1956 unfortunately is a little late for me.
But I also found this:

Is this an as-built scheme? That would be truly perfect...!
 
Thanks again and greetings
 
Johannes

According to Ralph Harris's article "NH Boxcar Part II" in the May 1995 MM, some NH cars were repainted to BCR scheme with large block "NH" at least as early as July 1956.

Hello friends,

I consider purchasing this model:

https://www.brasstrains.com/Classic/Product/Detail/117375/HO-Brass-Model-CCI---Railworks-Crown-Custom-Imports-CCI-262-NH---BAR-New-Haven---Bangor-Arastook-Insulated-Boxcar-w--Under-Car-Heater-Unpainted

I already have one in the beautiful "State of Maine" scheme. Were all these cars painted this way when delivered, or is there another accurate paint scheme of that time or shortly after?

Many thanks and greetings

Johannes
