SP Co. McKeen motor car photo wanted


I'm looking for information and a photo of one of the SPCo. McKeen motor cars running in passenger service in the 1900-1920'S on the old SF MAIN LINE. I think I have seen an old photo a number years ago in the Lorin Sillmen collection.

Is this a coincidence or what? I'm searching for photos of the McKeen used on the SP run from Sacramento through Folsom to Placerville. I understand that the last run was in 1939. ...

I have a real photo postcard of a McKeen #29 in front of a an unknown station. It came from a collector in Chico. Circa 1910-15. Anyone know it's route?

Here is a scan of the postcard. Any info you may have on it would be appreciated. The station in the background may be the Chico depot. Picture of current depot included. The card came from an old collection including scenes of the Chico - Stirling City railway.
