I tend to lean towards Southern Pacific, not for the livery, but for how they absolutely thrashed their locomotives within an inch of their lives and then just demanded even more. The locomotives themselves are little more than varying shades of dirt and rust, so for a bit more colour I aim at the merger period with Santa Fe (failed merger bid but really bright livery) and the buyout by Rio Grande. These allow quite a bit of legitimate variation on top of the usual occasional 'foreign' power. The best thing about the SP though is the unique railroad specific details, I've been converting H0 models for years, N should be quite interesting.
