Remarks & Notes 
A rarely seen view of SP 4449 Southern Pacific GS-4 4449, known as "The Daylight", may well be the most photographed locomotive in the world. Even so, this one is different than most. This shot shows the inside of the firebox. 4449 is currently undergoing extensive boiler work, as mandated by the FRA regulations. Part of that work can be seen here. While visiting the ORHC, I found they they had disassembled a bit of the firebox, and the resulting opening allowed you to poke your head in and get photos. Showing what a great place the museum is, they even placed a sign telling folks about it, along with a small stepladder for a better look inside. Certainly a unique view of an area that is typically only seen by the crew.
