One very distinctive proboscis. Certainly one of the most easily recognizable smokeboxes on any preserved steam locomotive is the one seen here on Southern Pacific GS-4 Class #4449. Equipped with extensive streamliner body fairings, this engine prominently carries the name of the famous SP Coast Daylight, that she once hauled. In addition to her Lima Builder's Plate, she also carries a plaque, commemorating her loan by the people of Portland, for use on the American Freedom Train, during America's bicentennial celebration in 1975-76. Perhaps most distinctive is the massive silver fairing, housing her vertically stacked, dual headlight arrangement. The uppermost headlamp is perhaps the most unusual that I've ever seen on a steam engine. Known as a "Gyra-Light", it acts much like a rolling eyeball, continually changing its focus, vertically and horizontally, apparently to attract the attention of motorists and pedestrians. It's pretty effective. It's a bit like the eyes on Thomas the Tank Engine. You not only notice it right away, but it sort of freaks you out the first time you see it.
