Not certain, but this may have been the instance where they were tested with the dynomometer car. That may be it in the
consist.

I believe this shot is of their first trip west. They were tested on the Kaiser ore train on their way up north to Roseville.

That photo of the SP 4411 is amusing, with the I believe 73 inch drivers falling short of reaching the streamline shroud. The later GS engines had 80 inch drivers which came right up to the shroud. Yours is a fine portrait.
