Default Consecutive order..

This one is new to me, but.. how often does one catch two different trains in one shot with the leads in concecutive order, or even two engines on the same train in concective order, I know here in and around Utah, the Utah railway will do that because they dont' have a big roster, but a class one like UP or someone else of the sort?
I caught this the other day in Salt Lake 4449, and 4450 coming out of the West Salt Lake Intermodal Facility.

They were both ready to depart at the same time, 4450 moved forward, stopped then 4449 pulled out, and after that I don't know exactly what happened, because I was already late for work and decided I better go and earn some money for the day.

I think it is fairly strange on a Class 1 and a trans-continental line, unless they are brand new.

Only once have I seen this, BNSF 5072 & 5071 on a unit train.

This has happened to me several times, especially with the CEFX AC4400's. I've also seen a set of engines one day, and a week or two later, I see the same set coming from the other direction.

Heres a shot i got of this. Ironicly also, these were both retired and scrapped at near exact dates

A few days later they came back, but with just the SD45s!

Tough one for the Class 1s, but the closest I came was on consecutive days with the H-GFDGAL (granted, one was DPU, but still weird on a fleet as large as BNSF's C44-9Ws):

Another weird thing is how bad the paint is faded on the one but not the other...

Best version of this sort of thing that I ever saw was in one of my previous jobs where we had a set of locos numbered from 60039 to 60043 to work stone trains in the London area. We were a relatively small depot so it would not be unusual to see two or three of them in our yard. But one Saturday I turned up to work and found 60039 to 60042 all neatly lined up in numerical order in the only stabling siding that would hold more than two locos. It had not been planned, my colleague decided early on in his shift to put all the arriving class 60's in the same road and that was the order that they turned up in.
The chances of seeing two of them together hauling a train would have been remote as these engines rarely work in pairs.

Now that would have been a great to see, did you by chance get any pictures?

Regrettably I didn't, as the locos were sandwiched between the offices and an empty train that was staying all weekend. In any case, this was pre EWS days when engines had small numbers on the cab sides which would not have shown up in a photograph.

Looking through my records for something completely unrelated earlier, I also notice that I saw 218 461 and 218 462 paired up on an Inter City train in Germany a couple of years ago. I probably do have a picture of that, but not immediately to hand as it would need scanning. The same problem would also occur with seeing the numbers, Deutsche Bahn ones being even smaller in size than British Rail's.
