I've also seen on railroadfan.com and michiganrailroads.com that 4449's visit is being sponsered by Amtrak. The websites mention that there should be 8 operating steam locomotives there sometime during the 4-day festival. Gary

From what I could tell there will be an excursion all the way to Owasso from Portland, OR. They will also run an all day excusion Friday, July 24th behind the Daylight. They have also added Dome Car and Obervation Car First Class upgrades to the Saturday and Sunday excursions behind PM #1225 and NKP #765. It looks like this event is turning into a can't miss for railfans. Here is a link to the Steam Institute's website.
