Great looking trio Tom.  Especially like those first two.  Great memories of how Tehach used to be.  Thanks for sharing.

Note SP 7106 in the first picture. At the time of the photograph it was 2 months out of it's rebuild for the SP by Morrison Knudsen. It was the very last unit delivered to the SP with the traditional Southern Pacific lettering on the long hood. Starting with the very next unit, SP 7107, everything from then to the end of the SP's existence came with the Southern Pacific in Speed Lettering.

Nice set of a neat unit model--especially the snoot noses.
