First and always
SP grey and scarlet (also the 2 experimental Daylights, and SPSF Kodachrome scheme)
2-MKT green and yellow
3-NP Northcoast Limited scheme
4-NdeM original red and black (didn't care for the smurfs when they first came out but they grew on me)
5-Chessie System
6-WM circus scheme
7-Interstate railroad
Probably several more I didn't think of

I have a lot of paint schemes that I like but the one that has always stood out is the Southern line Daylight paint scheme. The blend of colors all compliment each other and screams class.

Thats my vote for my favorite paint scheme. 👍

That last photo reminded me that a train buff I knew stated the CSX units in solid blue came from the Chessie System and the blue/gray came from the Seaboard/Family Lines System. I don't know what he based his information on or even if it's true.
Full on falsehood.

The blue/grey/yellow was the standard scheme around the 1990s, and the solid blue shown is a late 2000s paint scheme.

Both of the engines in the photo in this thread were built YEARS after the CSX merger. The last engine in dark blue is quite recent.

Wow, it's been years since I've last visited this forum!

My favourite livery(s) on a diesel locomotive is BC Rail's Two Tone Green scheme and their later red white and blue livery.
