In 1941 when the first Southern Pacifics GS-4 Daylight steam locomotive began her run, she was called "the most beautiful train in the world." By the time the Daylights were retired in 1956, the 4449 was given a permanent home in Portland, Oregon. Returned to service for the 1976 Bicentennial celebration, she was decorated in red, white, and blue - and powered "America's Freedom Train" across the nation. Today the 4449 is the only surviving example of the legendary GS-4 4-8-4 engine class. LIONEL captured her original red, orange, and black art-deco styling in its product line. #8 in the LIONEL Trains series. Die-Cast Metal The wheels turn.
