Looking for Southern Pacific Railroad info.

I am searching for other members who might have had a relative that was employed with Southern Pacific out of Ashland, Oregon, or who was employed in the Shasta division based in Dunsmuir, CA. My great great grandfather was Edwin Forrest Young, in some documents he is known as E.F. Young. He worked out of Ashland, Oregon between 1915 and 1925 as an Engineer. I would love to find some old pictures. I am specifically looking for the types of equipment he would have operated, and where he might have gone in that area. I've found payroll records, but they are not as much help as I'd hoped them to be. I'm making contact with the Colorado RR museum, and have contacted the California State museum, and Stanford University as well.
