Pennsylvania 4800

The GG1 is 80 years old this Year.

Hard to believe, but Pennsylvania Railroad’s GG1 electric 80 years old in 2014!

I made this detailed view of PRR’s pioneer GG1, number 4800 at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in November 1996.

This machine was different than all the others because it didn’t have Raymond Loewy’s full styling refinement and featured a riveted skin. ‘Old Rivets’ is a favorite machine.
