I am brand new to this site but have a question for anyone. In 1975 I owned a sign company and specialized in Neon signs. I was approached by a group and asked to do a sign for the freedom train final car. I in fact made two of the signs but do not have a photo or the original pattern. Could anyone be of help to me?  Thank you for any help or advise. I did go to the new museum in Portland, Oregon last week and saw the #4449 train. The cars that it pulled are scattered all over the country I was told. Thank you again

Hi Ken,
Interesting association.  I saw the 4449 in Sacramento in it's original colors at Railfair '91.  A beautiful engine.  I can't tell from your description where the neon sign would have been used (Inside one of the cars? Outside as a "drumhead" on the rear of the train?) but you might find some information here:

Let us know!
