Wondering what other color combinations that the 156 came in besides Dark Green with marron trim. Thinking of painting different than it is now. Thanks for any help.

None. At least from a production sense. I have never seen a paint sample in another color even.
Greenberg guide to Lionel trains 1901-1942 volume II has 4 colors listed. Dark Green, Maroon, Olive Green and Gray. With red window trim except for the Maroon that has Gold trim.
Ive been told by some long term collectors that those are likely 156X cabs (they are the same) that were put onto 156 4-4-4 frames. Hard to dispute either way because they are only 105 years old... or thereabouts. Never seen one other than dark green in the wild. Scarce or maybe even rare at this point.
