N 4-8-4 GS-4 Southern Pacific Lines #4449


The GS-4 runs on four massive 80” drivers, 300lbs PSI boiler pressure, and puts out a roaring 5,500 horsepower at 55mph, with a maximum speed of 110 mph. Large drivers give the locomotive a tremendous top speed; the telling mark of a steam engine built for passenger service. When they were first built, GS-4’s had their train number boards mounted at the front of the engine and wore the current (at the time) “Southern Pacific Lines” lettering on their tenders. In later years, these number boards were moved further back down the body to make them more readable, although when #4449 was recently renovated its train numbers were returned to the front to reflect its “as delivered” appearance.
