The PA was A.C. Gilbert's first diesel model, with Santa Fe being the first road name used. The first paint scheme was the all-chrome one, then later the Warbonnet version was added. The red-and-silver paint scheme was introduced later and was manufactured for 12 years. Both A- and B-units were made. The #360/#361 set of the A-B-units, shown in the photo, were cataloged as "#362" (shown in the catalog with red stripe and the Santa Fe Warbonnet). Of the six variations, only three have the Warbonnet. The unit in the photo without the Warbonnet is unusual as is it has a yellowish chrome-finish with wire handrails. It was produced for only a few months in 1950 making it the rarest of all of the #360/361.
