Numerous units were painted in 1985 with red white and blue along with the Expo 86 emblem on the fuel tank. This was the beginning of the end for the "two tone green" paint scheme. Not sure which unit was the first to be painted this way.

That one appears to retained it's original Nathan M5H horn.

This was the so called "Hockey Stick" paint scheme that ended the two tone green.
C-420 #631 was the first locomotive painted in this scheme. I believe a total of 22 units received this paint job including 5 new SD40-2's delivered by GMDD in 1985.
The Hockey Stick paint scheme was replaced in early 1987 with a different red white and blue scheme what featured a wider white band and red and blue logo.
