Hi. Rivarossi made this model from 1964 until 1996.
This website gives the dates of the various models.

Your Santa Fe version is from 1977 and looks like model 5090/03 as the wheels do not look like the other version which has RP25 wheel standards.

The H0seeker website gives construction details -look for the USRA 2-8-8-2 info and choose the year from the drop-down menu.

Hope this helps. Colin.
