Who does this belong to?

Was going through my log of photos from 2008 and found this one. It is in the Saginaw shops but who does it belong to?

Possibly this? Looks a little different but perhaps your photo is post-restoration?

Well it was purchased by Jim George, the formed (deceased) president of the railroad. I'm not sure if he owned it personally and his wife owns it now (and then maybe sold it to the railroad after his death), if the railroad owned it, or if another corporation relating to the railroad legally owns it.

I believe that it's former Santa Fe?
