It's the Westside Line (or Branch) of the SP, now the Portland & Western.
The 4449 ran a series of trips for the Willamette & Pacific and the then newly formed (as of August 1995) Portland & Western Railroad, touring the entire W&P/P&W system. Pentrex put out a video documenting the entire event.
Since then, the 4449 has attended the Cruisin' Sherwood event in Sherwood, about 20 miles north of McMinnville, but has not returned back to McMinnville since 1995 (nor had been there previously).
