Yes, Santa Fe never played around with painting steam locomotives. As far as I know they only ever had one steam loco that was a different color - robins egg blue specifically. A few (Hudson's mainly) had an experimental blue logo on the tender, but mostly just a large loco number on the basic black tender.
