Restored former Southern Pacific streamlined steam engine 4449 begins the 4 mile trip in reverse back to Oregon Museum of Science & Industry (OMSI) in Portland. I and many others that I know all want to see this engine back in the "Daylight" orange and red paint scheme again. It is an awesome locomotive but the streamlined shrouding on it just does not do what the lack of it, as on engine 700, does to folks who foam at the mouth at this stuff.
