I am battling to find another Kato SD 70ACe in BNSF livery. I can get a SD70 MAC in BNSF livery. Now my question is: do prototype railways ever run two or more mixed locos together?

I can get Union Pacific locos now ( which I was looking for initially :(, but couldn't find at the time), so went BNSF.

I suppose running a BNSF and UP together will look strange. Do prototype railways ever do that?

It’s done by the railroads all the time. They lease power from each other and the units are routinely mixed in consists.
I would say that UP/BNSF is entirely possible. Even if it wasn’t, your layout your rules.

Exactly. You do what you want.

But leased or shared power isn't at all uncommon, nor are locos that have been sold or transferred, but not yet repainted or renumbered.
