Just my opinion but, I don't see how THAT much "water minerals" would accumulate all over the running gear. The characteristic white mineral deposits on UP steam locomotives were generally all around the top of the boiler turret, from the discharge of the Willson Blowdown Separator.
To me, that looks more like the locomotive was sitting a long time and subjected to dust storms.
