    Very interesting for me. I worked for the Forest Service in 1960's and spent my summers fighting fires in this same location

    The caption is incorrect. Although on Santa Fe tracks, it is a photo a Union Pacific passenger train. The locomotive is a Los Angeles & Salt Lake MT-2 class, 4-8-2. The LA & SL was owned by the UP. From looking at the enlarged TIFF image, the locomotive number is likely #7850. This engine had the nickname ''Killer'' because three employees were killed while operating it at various times.
