Wiring a K-Line GG1 For Overhead Power ?

Dan Padova ·
I'd like to convert my K-Line GG1 to run on overhead power. I removed the body and noticed that there is a wiring harness already wired to the two lugs under the pantographs. However, there is no place to plug the male plug into. I can do some cutting of the wires coming from the center rail pick-up rollers and cut the plug off of the wiring harness, then connect them, but was wondering if anyone else has done the conversion.

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...

Bill NO preserved GG1 is operational. The transformers were removed and the carbodies had to be flushed to remove any trace of PCB's ( polychlorinated biphenyl , not printed circuit boards...) By the way, my favorite is Brunswick green single stripe. Rusty

i thought i had read somewhere that one of the G's sit had its transformer's... if there was a possiblitly of one running again it would be that one... it would still never happen, though would cost way too much money... but you never know... people dump millions into restoring old planes, look at that P-61 out at reading, its over 80% new parts.

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...

I really don't know a lot about this motor's history. I bought it as a standalone that I was going to use as a project piece.

Lionel Conventional Classics GG1 ??

Dan Padova ·
I may be mistaken, but I don't believe Lionel ever made a GG1 with traction tires. There's one advertised on Ebay, "Lionel 6-38303 Pennsylvania GG1 #2340 Post War Conventional Classics 2008". In looking at the pictures presented by the seller, it's clear that it "had" traction tires at one time.

2332 GG1 Motor Brush Replacement

Dan Padova ·
The motor brushes in the 2332 motor are housed in an enclosed holder. The only way to get them out and be able to clean the commutator is by removing the brush plate. However, the copper wire that is part of the motor winding is keeping me from being able to remove the plate. It simply isn't long enough to allow the brush plate to clear the brush plate screw bosses. Is there a trick to this or do I have to unsolder the wire ?

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.
