Having had to travel without its passenger cars by a circuitous route because of too-tight clearances at bridges, steam locomotive No. 4449 waits on a siding at Michigan City, Indiana, for a diesel to bring its train from Chicago on the last leg of its trip from Portland to Owosso, Michigan, for “America’s Largest Celebration of Railroading in 2009.” The Daylight engine was one of the highlights of the celebration. Southern Pacific introduced the streamlined Daylight in 1937. It preferred to keep the design work in-house, and turned to Charles L. Eggleston, a draftsman in its motive power department. Eggleston (1890-1971) was well qualified for the assignment. He had studied at the San Francisco Institute of Art in 1912-13, become a member of the California Society of Etchers, and exhibited at the Oakland Art Gallery (1934). No. 4449 was built in 1941.
