Thrill to the sight of big steam conquering the Pacific Northwest as SP Daylight 4449 takes to the rails once more! See the SP Daylight 4449 in black paint! Witness big steam over Stevens Pass! Ride aboard the train along scenic Puget Sound! Catch dozens and dozens of spectacular runbys! In July of 2000, the mighty 4449 was painted black with BNSF decals to head up a BNSF Employee Appreciation Special. Running over former Burlington Northern trackage, the Daylight treated enthusiastic crowds to the sights and sounds of thundering steam power.

Pentrex was on the spot, capturing exciting scenes throughout the train’s extensive route. Starting in Vancouver, Washington, we follow the train across the state and into British Columbia, Canada, and Idaho, visiting the cities of Tacoma, Seattle, Everett, Bellingham, and Vancouver, B.C. A special highlight is a ride aboard the train along the Puget Sound, from Balmer Yard in Seattle to Everett. You’ll see the EAS traveling over Stevens Pass – what an awesome sight that is! – and at Skykomish and exiting Cascade Tunnel. Continuing eastward, the train stops at Wenatchee and Spokane, then crosses the long bridge over Lake Pend Oreille on its way to Sandpoint, Idaho. Dozens and dozens of runbys fill the screen with scenic images of steam railroading. There’s also plenty of freight and passenger train action along the route, including Amtrak’s Talgo trains.

* Bonus Footage: 15 additional minutes, not available in the VHS version, featuring diesel freight and Amtrak action in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

    Seeing the 4449 in black color pulling the BNSF employee special is my personal favorite along with the original Daylight colors.

    behold one of my favorite 4449 dvd’s ever made. i have a o scale model of the bnsf painted 4449 locomotive. pentrex did a wonderful job capturing the bnsf painted 4449 daylight. this video just like every pentrex title has a ton of surprises in store. this video is worth watching over and over.

    This was the very first pentrex DVD ever made. There is also good riding footage along Puget sound, different freights on BNSF, despite the pre-merged units still wearing their own paint in operation, and Amtrak’s new Cascade Limited.
