Why 4449 instead of 2472?

Setting aside the question of Union Pacific allowing non-UP steam locomotives on its main line, why do so many insist that 4449 be part of the celebration when, in real life, the GS4s were not regularly assigned to Southern Pacific's Overland route?

The 2472 did operate on Overland route and would be a more historically accurate representative of the non-Union Pacific partner of the Transcontinental Railroad.
