Reply to "Modern era standard gauge just found........."

Well, here's the GG1.  She is about 30" long and weighs about 30 pounds.  Everything appears to have been designed so that it could run 24/7 for years.  I cannot imagine any model locomotive, other than a big, live steamer, that has been engineered like these Gold Standard Engineering GG1's.   The fellow who produced these, Robert C. Hendrich, actually lived in Glendora, a suburb of Los Angeles.  I believe we were both members of TCA Western Division at the time, but I have no memory of ever having met him or seeing him display these gorgeous models at a meet.  Only 58 of these GG1's were built, available in Brunswick Green as mine is or Tuscan Red.  I wonder if one is rarer than the other?
