Remarks & Notes 
Proving she still has what it takes, SP 4449 heads up the 2.34% Vincent grade out of Palmdale with an auxiliary tender and 13 passenger cars destined for the Louisiana World's Fair in New Orleans. She reached the summit unassisted at a steady 14 mph, in a scene that looked like the it was taken over 65 years ago.
