    All three of the Alco’s appear to be EMD repowered, but none of them have spark arrestors.

    The FB1 nearest to 5012 appears to be 5304. I can’t really read the number on the other B unit or the A or the GP7 (which is steam generator equipped).

    If you look at the trucks on the lead A unit you can tell that it is a FA-1.

    It wasn’t until about 1960 that the Frisco would add a GP-7 to a consist of F’s and F A’s (Info from employee timetables). This might help with the date. Before that (approximate) year, the cab units ran in unbroken consists.
