The #29 is seen here at the end of her career on the McCloud.  Photo taken June 1969.  The unit, along with the rest of the McCloud's Baldwin diesels, had been retired after the arrival of the three SD38’s (#36-#38) barely a month before.  The unit is seen here sitting in McCloud, awaiting its eventual sale to the Magma Arizona Railroad on 22 November 1969.  Unknown photographer, courtesy of Jimmy Bryant.

The #29 is seen here in 1978 as Magma Arizona Railroad's #10 in their open air enginehouse in Superior, AZ. The Magma Arizona kept the McCloud paint basically intact, changing only the number and lettering. Later on the Magma Arizona painted yellow stripes over the red stripes. Photo is by Bart Barton and is from the collection of the Arizona Railway Museum .

The #29 as it appears today, in the collection of the Arizona Railway Museum in Chandler, Arizona. Note that the red stripes have been painted over with yellow except across the dynamic brake and air intake screens. Photo by Steve Whisel and is from the collection of the Arizona Railway Museum.
