Southern Pacific Engine No. 2845, a big twelve-wheeler with a 4-8-0 wheel configuration, is under steam at Saugus, Calif., on May 28, 1938.

Built at Schenectady Locomotive Works in the 1890s, the 4-8-0's were the SP's biggest and strongest locomotives. No. 2845 was still in operation on the Los Angeles line as late as the early 1950s, possibly longer.

Photographer unknown. 2½x4¼-inch print.
