From the Friends of the 4449 web page: Uncertain Future &
The future of the Brooklyn Roundhouse, our home since the early 1980's, is uncertain. The '49 currently resides in this locked and publicly inaccessible facility in the middle of an active intermodal freight railroad yard located in Southeast Portland.
The former Southern Pacific Northern type #4449 is owned and operated by the City Of Portland, Oregon. For more information on Steam Locomotive #4449: http://www.4449.com
