The PA/PB Santa Fe units were produced from 1953 through 1958. Only the 1953 unit, shown in the photo, has the chrome finish with the red Warbonnet. Starting in 1954, the Santa Fe chrome finish was changed to a satin silver finish with a red Warbonnet, as there were issues with the chrome finish which tended to chip and flake off. Catalog numbers #470, #471, and #473 in the set are shown in the photo. Photo #2 is of the same models, but from a different angle.
