This locomotive is a Southern Pacific M-6 Class Mogul. It was built for the Southern Pacific and operated solely by the Southern Pacific. It was never owned by the Union Pacific. It had no damage to its front end and throughout its entire life, it’s highly likely it never left the state of California.

Believe this locomotive was built for Union Pacific. It may be the locomotive featured in the book LEAVENWORTH TRAIN, which was used in an escape from Leavenworth. The front of the locomotive was damaged when it crashed through a prison gate, I believe in 1902. (See the damage on the front of the Lomita locomotive.
