Matt is correct. Subsequently, that unit was purchased by L&N in 1966 and rebuilt into an RS3 by L&N using components from a damaged L&N FA2. It was renumbered to L&N #104 (2nd).
The car behind the locomotive is a Monon head end caboose. It was one of 6 such cars Monon constructed from old stone-hauling gondolas in the Lafayette Shops.

The SP&S engine was used on the Monon late in its life so I believe the location to be Salem Indiana on the Monan.

In the slide below, there's an odd looking Monon car just behind the loco. Photo was taken at Salem, Oregon.
