Steam Saturday: Some Daylight in Michigan

In July 2009 former Southern Pacific 4-8-4 “Daylight” No. 4449 traveled to Owosso, Michigan, for the steam festival here there.

In this series of images the GS-4 class Lima-built engine is headed back to Oregon after its time at the festival.

In the top and middle images it is shown in the yard in Durand as the crew prepares it for that day’s run. The bottom image was made west of Durand on the former Grand Trunk Western mainline.
