SD&AE 102 at Jacumba, CA. According to Evan Werkema, "According to information compiled by Scott Inman, this would be the Railroad Boosters' "Carriso Gorge" excursion of October 15,1939."

Mike on Trainorders said:
Train is east bound towards the Carriso Gorge, a little more than 3 1/2 miles ahead!
There is a lot going on in the photo, most of which is no longer around, the water tower the shed to the left of the reefer and boxcar on the siding to the left and the storage tank in the background. Just over the top of the steel shed, you can see part of the Jacumba Depot which is still there. The train order pole in front of the depot is gone. That was a Standard Oil Distributor for this area in the background over the train.
Photographer most likely Bill Darrough, from the Darrough Collection. Since negatives were extensively traded it's possible Bill was not the photographer. Photos from this collection have been shared with permission from Jack Darrough, obtained before he died.
