The three T&NO units eventually migrated to Los Angeles shortly before retirement in 1969.
Two Pacific Lines units SP 1498 and 1505 were transferred to the T&NO in 1956 and renumbered 121 and 122, to replace two FM H12-44's (T&NO 119, 120) that were to be delivered to T&NO, but never were, SP decided to keep all the H12-44's on the west coast. In 1965 #121 and 122 were renumbered SP 2124, 2125, and in 1969 moved to LA with the 3 other T&NO S-12's.
There were a number of detail variations over the years:
