The only reference I could find to a steam locomotive #622 is the Canadian Pacific #622.  I think it's a ten-wheeler, from the early 20th Century.

It looks like it but it is different, thanks anyway.

According to Wabash by Heimburger, The Wabash did have a #622. It was built by the Richmond Works in 1901, Class H-11 #620-#625, and had a 4-6-0 wheel arrangement. They were renumbered #630-#635 and then #1630-#1635 before being retired in 1931. I don't know if this info helps, but thought I would throw it out there.
You might reach out to the Wabash Railroad Historical Society and see if they can help.

Using Google's image search feature it came up with "Best guess for this image: 1900 steam train" and "Group Photo R.R. Engine 1900" credited to "U.S. Forest Service, Southwestern Region, Kaibab National Forest."
 
https://www.flickr.com/photos/kaibabnationalforest/5734775129/
 
This one from the Google results seems to claim it is in Williams, AZ in 1900, which would make it an AT&SF loco AFAIK: http://www.thetrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Steam-Locomotive-in-Williams-AZ-ca.1900.jpg accessed from the 1953 link on the Grand Canyon Railway timeline at http://www.thetrain.com/the-train/history-of-the-train/
 
Other pages appear to use this image, but they all appear to refer to the Grand Canyon Railway site as the source.
 
I have been unable to locate any other circa 1900 photo of AT&SF 622.
 
Hope this helps at least a little...
