The GS-4
4-8-4 Steam Locomotives

The Southern Pacific 'Daylight Trains' is the most well known paint scheme among model railroaders of all ages. The striking orange and red scheme is recognizable at any distance as the 'Daylight'. The 'Daylight' Scheme is very popular and very well known to railroad fans all over the world.

The introduction of the 'Daylight' 4-8-4 GS-4 engines with matching train sets in the late 1930's was perhaps the zenith of rail passenger travel in the USA. Con-Cor has captured the feel and grace of the famous 'Daylight' trains.

The Con-Cor 'N' Scale GS-4 'Daylight' will be built on the same 4-8-4 platform as our 'N' S-2 Northern model which has received high praise from everyone for its smooth running and pulling power. The 'Daylight' will feature a powerful 5 pole skewed armature motor, fine handrails and lots of factory added tiny detail parts. Also the model will include a completely new GS-4 tender with the correct trucks and many fine details.

The model will include a DCC friendly Printed Circuit board with the NMRA 8 pin DCC connector for ease in adding a DCC decoder of your choice.
(Decoder is not included in the price of the model.)
Features:
# 5 pole skewed armature motor (high-torque and quiet)
# Proven reliable smooth running Con-Cor 4-8-4 mechanism
# Runs traditional 12v DC 2 rail out of the box, but has a DCC friendly NMRA 8 pin PC board in tender, ready for your favorite DCC decoder if you wish to convert to DCC control.

P/N: C-C-3875 Undecorated GS-4 Class
4-8-4 Steam Locomotive Wartime Version "Warbaby"
No Road Number


Click on photo to see larger version.
The GS-4 Class 4-8-4 built for the Southern Pacific originally had shrouding below the walkways to make the engine appear more streamlined. During World War II the shrouding was removed and the locomotives were painted black for ease of maintenance. Moving troops and war material (mostly at night) had priority. The removal of the shrouding exposed all of the steam piping and water pumps underneath and made the locomotive look even more impressive. Models include DCC friendly printed circuit board with the NMRA 6 pin DCC connector for ease in adding a DCC decoder of your choice.
Only 25 being made.

P/N: C-C-3863 American Freedom Train GS-4 Class
GS-4 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive Road #4449

To celebrate our nation's 200th Bi-Centennial Anniversary an idea from the past was resurrected to create an exhibit train that would move around the country with significant documents and other exhibits of historic and cultural importance from our nations proud history.

This would enable citizens who were unable to travel and visit Washington DC or Philadelphia and other famous areas in our nations history a chance to view memorabilia from our nations' history.

Southern Pacific Loco 4449 had not been under its own steam for 16 years and was moved from a Portland,Oregon City park in 1974 to be rebuilt for use on the American Freedom Train.

When the 4449 emerged from the Burlington Northern Portland Roundhouse in late 1975 it not only was ready for service on the Freedom Train, but had been repainted in a breath-taking patriotic new paint scheme as shown in the photo above.

The American Freedom Train traveled the country in 1975 and 1976 and brought part of America's history to millions of Americans from the large cities to the smallest hamlets.

Invited to participate in the opening of the California State Railroad Museum in 1981, it seemed most appropriate to return her to the famous Daylight paint scheme that she had worn during the heyday of passenger service in the Golden State. This restored paint scheme was met by overwhelming approval by the railfan community.

In her Daylight scheme the 4449 again traveled to many parts of the USA for fan trips and display during the 1980's and early 1990's.

In 1999 the BNSF leased the locomotive to use for employee and shipper appreciation trips and 4449 was repainted back to a black paint scheme with BNSF lettering on it.

In early 2002 it was learned that the Insurance carrier for the engine was going to raise their insurance premiums 2X in the Spring of 2002 and it was decided to run at least one more fantrip before the insurance was increased.

It was also decided to repaint the loco for the fantrip...most fans just assumed it would be repainted back into the famous Daylight Scheme. But on March 23rd 2002 when railfans showed up to board their fantrip they were stunned and pleased to find out that the 4449 had NOT BEEN repainted in the Daylight Colors, but in the American Freedom Train colors in honor of the 9-11 tragedy.
