The “World’s Most Famous Locomotive”, the Southern Pacific‘s number 4449 made a stopover in Whitefish, Montana on the 4th and 5th of July, on its way from Portland, Oregon to Owosso, Michigan where it will participate in TrainFestival 2009. The grand lady of the steam locomotive era was the first operating steam engine to pull into the Whitefish station in over twenty five years. Known as the Daylight, the Southern Pacific number 4449 was built in 1941 at the Lima, Ohio locomotive works. During her career, no. 4449 pulled the Southern Pacific’s first class “daylight” passenger trains between Los Angeles and San Francisco and on to Portland up until 1955. After being retired for many years to static display, she was selected in 1974 to pull the freedom train throughout the United States and was subsequently completely rebuilt. SP4449 ran for the next three years to the delight of over 30 million people nationwide. Considered by many to be the most beautiful steam locomotive ever built, she is lovingly kept in that condition by a team of volunteers at her home berth.
