It's a Kenworth W-1.

More surprisingly, the only period photo I can find on the internet is of the same exact bus, North Coast Lines #708:

Given the equally period flatcars, I did some digging and found that the bus, flatcars, and trailer belong to the Washington State Railroads Historical Society:

www.wsrhs.org/mis.htm

They give the history as: "North Coast Lines, 1935-36, Aluminum, Kenworth Bus, used for hauling rail"
