Southern Pacific 4449 pulling the ORHF Holiday express in November 2015. All night shots, and decorated with Christmas lights! This was taken at several locations near Oaks Park in Portland, OR. The costs and regulations of operating big steam engines like this one have been slowly increasing, while the enthusiasm among younger generations has been slowly decreasing. Younger people go out to buy cell phones and video games, but nothing that has to do with trains. The operation of big steam will one day become a thing of the past in a few decades.
