The rebuild ones are not true Santa Fe units. IIRC they are ex MBTA FP10 rebuilts. They now are running on a dinning/excursion train in Texas painted for Santa Fe.

It's not the repaint i'm not fine with, it's just that it's not an f3 or atleast an f7, and using a fp7, with all of it's outside extras, ugh

Im just going to ask this right out: why can't museums just restore the vehicles in correct paint schemes? Why do they feel the need to fake an engine?

 

The NYC and PRR E8s still rolling, for example. They're not really NYC/PRR engines. If they absolutely "need" an engine in those respective colours, why fake them? Why not buy an engine that was actually owned by that railroad at one time or the other?
