During the 200th anniversary of our nation’s birth, The American Freedom Train was created as a celebration of everything that shaped our country. This 25-car train crossed the United States displaying 500 artifacts gathered from museums around the nation. At the end of the two years, 1975 -1976, the train had traveled 25,833 miles, was displayed in 138 cities and was seen by millions! It was celebrated as a moving monument.

 

It was because of the American Freedom Train that steam engines like the SP’s 4449 were given a new life.
