Eastbound SP 4449 and the Cross-Country Daylight Train Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
Headed across the Wisconsin River Bridge near the confluence with the Mississippi River is the Eastbound SP 4449 Cross-Country Daylight Train in a scene from Wyalusing State Park that somewhat resembles the Pacific Northwest Region that is the engine's home. This is the first time I'd ever seen the Daylight GS-4 4-8-4, and I never imagined I'd be able to see it in the Midwest. Thanks to all the groups who made it happen. It was a fun chase.
