Oakland Fruitvale Station

Train at Oakland Fruitvale Station
Locomotive no. 2 at the Fruitvale Station in Alameda County, California, near Oakland, about 1890, with three men standing alongside. A single coach appears behind the locomotive. Very little else apart from foliage shows in the photograph. While the museum supplied the title and date, it did not name the railroad. It may be the Southern Pacific, but the low engine number raises questions.
