I'll throw out what I think are some unusual combos.

I got one which I still would have to say this was the best lash-up CSX could possibly combine! 3 SD40-2s, All in every YN* Paint Scheme. All in order, YN1, YN2, YN3! And the YN3 unit happened to be THE 8077 "Colonel Philip Hopper"!

Cool set of power, but no YN1 paintscheme to be found.The lead unit CSX #8146 is actually wearing the old Stealth paint scheme with yellow nose added. The YN1 paintscheme included the top half of the cab painted blue along with the top edge of the hood roof in blue as well. Here is a photo of a unit in YN1 paint.

Not as unusual as Steve's Western + class 40, but here is one of three class 37s.

They do work in multiple up to three locos and have done on certain very heavy trains in the past - but to see three, all working and in three different liveries as late as 1999 was very unusual.
