Southern Pacific's passenger service known as the Daylight operated mainly between Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA. The GS-4 streamlined steam locomotive was built by Lima Locomotive Works in 1941 and operated into the 1950s until it was retired in 1958. In 1974, the 4449 was restored, painted in a red, white, and blue paint scheme, and used to pull the 1976 Bicentennial American Freedom Train that traveled across the United States. After that it was restored to active excursion service, was repainted in its original Daylight colors and has operated on numerous passenger trips and other special appearances. Its operations are based at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center in Portland, OR where it is maintained by the Friends of SP 4449.
