Remarks & Notes 
Bound for the NRHS Convention in San Jose, SP 4449 climbs the 1% westward grade at Kegg Pit. At the time, no one realized that this would be the last time the Daylight 4-8-4 would go to California on the Shasta Route. My wife, one other railfan and I were the only people here. Most of the railfan world was chasing the UP 3985 down the Feather River Canyon, which occurred the same day.

This powerful and beautiful 4-8-4 Northern type steam locomotive hauled the Coast Daylight and other SP varnish. It came back from retirement to haul numerous specials and excursions, including the American Freedom Train.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
