Southern Pacific 4449 was built by the Lima Locomotive Works in 1941 as one of 26 engines of its type to pull the SP's "Daylight" passenger trains between Los Angeles and San Francisco. She remained in service until 1956 when she was retired. In 1957, she was donated to the City of Portland, Oregon and put into Oaks Park where she remained until 1974. She was removed from the park and restored to service to pull the Bicentennial American Freedom Train across the United States.
