Remarks & Notes 
SP 4449 heads north from San Luis Obispo with a helper to Santa Margarita, looking very much like the original Train 99 Coast Daylight except with an SD40 for a helper rather than a 2-10-2. This was the return leg to Portland of the New Orleans Worlds Fair Daylight.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.
