Preserved Southern Pacific steam locomotive # 4449 on display. Franklin Park Illinois. Saturday, August 1st 2009., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
A big event that happened in the greater Chicagoland area back in 2009, was the August 1st appearance of visiting Southern Pacific Railroad GS 4 "Daylight" steam locomotive # 4449 to northwest suburban Franklin Park Illinois.
The locomotive is viewed here simmering on display during a rainy afternoon, near preserved Tower B 12 in Franklin Park.
