Photo details:
~ top       : July 5, 1912 - hosted by the Utah Division of State History
~ middle : circa 1922 @ at St. John Station on the Oregon Short Line - hosted by the Utah Division of State History
~ bottom: The Salt Lake Mining Review - August 15, 1912 - page 13 

An interesting addition likely made to the locomotive subsequent to its manufacture was the extension of rear cab roof to completely overhang  the fuel bunker.  This is seen in the middle photo.

The railroad owned two class "C" Climaxes, with the second being s/n 1189 Although the source text accompanying the middle photo notes the locomotive is SJORR #1, there is one notable difference this particular locomotive has when compared to the same features on locomotive in the top and bottom photos.  Both hand rails on either side of the cab entrance on the middle locomotive are significantly longer than the same on the other two photos.  Could the locomotive in this middle photo actually be s/n 1189?
