Remarks & Notes 
There's Something You Don't See Everyday. It's your typical, June afternoon in Portland as...wait...SP 4449 running tender-forward on the mainline? That's right, the 1941-built product of Lima is seen leading the Gordon Zimmerman, Travelers Rest and the famous steam locomotive's companion auxiliary tender northwest past Union Pacific's Lakeside Yard and toward the bridge over the Willamette River. After turning northeast and making the river crossing, the short train will go on to BNSF's T-6 wye where it will be turned. This somewhat rare move came with the need to turn all the equipment pictured in preparation for the following day's run of the "Cascades Daylight" that operated from Portland to Bend. As this scene unfolds near downtown Portland, In the background, the snow covered 11,250-foot tall peak of Mt. Hood stands sentinel making many jealous of the cooler temperature there vs in downtown Portland.
