In the 1940s, the Southern Pacific "Morning Daylight" was possibly the world's most beautiful train, its orange and red striping being reserved for the SP's premier train lines. This "Morning Daylight" consist ran between Los Angeles and San Francisco along the beautiful California coast, past cities such as Ventura, Santa Barbara, Salinas and San Jose. Heading up the "Morning Daylight" was the specially built steam locomotive, the GS-4, one of the most well known steam engines ever built.
