Did Santa Fe ever had small and large steam locomotives built with Belpaire fireboxes.

They obtained a small number (two?) ex Pennsylvania L-i Mikados during WWII to counter a locomotive shortage.

They may have had locomotives with Belpaire fireboxes from Brooks around the turn of the twentieth century, either new or absorbed from  lines taken over.
