Lionel Texas Special

I recently purchased Lionel Texas Special F7 ABA units # 6-38217, 6-38218, 6-38219, with a 6-36660 caboose at an estate sale. I cannot locate them in Greensbergs or the Lionel catalog I have. Can anyone tell me what year they were offered by Lionel and were they part of a set? Thanks!

They are FT units from this set. It included the caboose.

The B unit was a separate sale item.

I believe the C2010 is a just copyright date in regards to the Lionel name & logo, it's not necessarily an indicator of the actual catalog announcement date or date of manufacture of the product itself.
