Amtrak Startup Locos?.. other than E8/9s and Fs

Amtrak Startup Locos..

I read a post where someone was looking for a model of an Amtrak E6, 7, 8, or 9...

Did Amtrak Roster any E6s and 7s?

I can't find any photos nor had I ever seen any.

I did see a photo of an SCL E7 behind an Amtrak patched E8...

   the D&H PAs,RS-2s,and RS-11s ran in Amtrak service until
   replaced by the Rohr Turbos in the mid 70s.
   can also add in some leased EL E8s that were used by D&H
   mainly in winter service.

Cool... I thought so.. wish I had a reason to model 1970s Amtrak.. Great mixture of stuff..

But alas, I'm stuck in the middle of Ph3 era..   I just need Rohr Turbos...
