Did the SP ever have any locos painted in the SPSF merger scheme? I did not think so but maybe ? It's cool.

it's a total foob, the merger failed in the 1980's and only one Santa Fe SD45 5394 had full lettering, and only in the paint shop.

When it comes to foobs, I think Athearn is approaching Con-Cor.

Look, if foobs get somewhat esoteric models made, bring em on.

Also, both ATSF and SP purchased wide cabs by the time they purchased SD70/75s.  So it's a little lacking even as an 'alternative history' scheme.

.. true.. and if they were merged.. they likely wouldn't have ordered both SD70Ms and SD75Is
