8753 GG1 Pantograph

Oscar ·
I have been searching but failed to come up with the part number. The horizontal blue steel leaf spring is broken on one of my pantographs for my 8753 GG1. Anyone know where I can find it? I tried Olsen's Toy Train parts, but could not determine if that was correct. Thanks in advance for any information.

Anyone know why this GG1 is here?

pittsburghrailfan ·
I was passing through Harrisburg today on the Pennsylvanian and caught a picture of this car on a siding near Rutherford Yard. A fellow railfan in the coach with me said the tarp had "FRA" on it. Anyone know what this car is and/or why it was there?...

This is the only thing I could find, an ad that ran in Model Railroader during October and December 1958: It's the top set. Rusty

@Rusty Traque: Yep, that's the set. I will most definitely take some pictures of this set sometime in the future. It's a nice-looking locomotive. I ran it for a bit yesterday, and it runs pretty good for a loco from 1958.

My latest Painting in Progress

Angela Trotta Thomas ·
Hi There! I just thought I might give you a sneak peak of a painting that I am working on for the York Train Meet. When I do a painting like this I start out by setting the trains up in my studio and photographing the scene from many directions and in different lighting so I can better judge the best way to capture the scene during the painting process. This is one way I work, I also take many pictures of layouts wherever I go that may end up being the best reference for a painting.

Penn Line GG-1 Freight Set: Need Info

Lionel2056 ·
Hi all, I have owned a Penn Line GG-1 Freight set (with original box) for a few years now, and I struggled to find a lot of information about it. I recently learned that this particular set, No. 5702, was made only in 1958 and sold for $65.00. So, this brings me to my question: Does anyone know of other sites where I can learn more about this set? (I know about HO Seeker.)

Pennsy Cats Whiskers

Dan Padova ·
Raymond Lowey designed the five stripe paint scheme in the early '30s for the GG1. In his words, it was not only aesthetics, but also functional, as anyone working or otherwise, on the tracks could see the cats whiskers coming. So here's my question, Why is it that the cats whiskers on the GG1 curve all the way around and onto the nose of the locomotive, making them visible on the front of the loco ? While on Pennsy's covered wagon diesels, the stripes are visible from the side only. I don't...

Williams Scale GG1

Dan Padova ·
I have acquired a Williams Scale GG1 recently, used. I opened it up to replace the lamps and noticed that there is a Lionel circuit board inside. The previous owner installed it as I don't believe it was there when the loco was new. There is a 9 volt battery connector but no battery. The sound operates well. It has the usual sounds of a GG1 plus horn and bell. So why is the system operating without a battery. Should I put one in ? Should I put in a BCR ?

There are plenty of good reasons the Penn Central still has a following. Many of us have fond memories of the railroad. Some of us had relatives that worked there. Many others enjoy and appreciate the wide and colorful array of motive power and equipment that was inherited by the merger. And some simply take a liking to the utilitarian engine...

OK here goes Green 5 stripe--6 Red 5 stripe-----3 Green single stripe-2 Silver red stripe----1 Interestingly I am not sure a NJ Transit unit was manufactured on O gauge. In the prototype, most GG1s wore the Green 5 stripes for the longest period 20 years or more. The Green single stripe lasted from 1955 through 1970 or so into the PC era, about 15 years. Amtrak colors from 1971 through early 1980's about 10 years or so.The red units were about 10 or so and the silver PRR only 3. Color...

It's the GG1 and caboose from the station. It's being stored there while they are doing work in the station. The tarp (which I believe is some sort of shrink wrap-type stuff) is to protect them.
