PRR 4859 booted from Harrisburg Station

NS6770Fan ·
The rumors on RYPN came true. PRR 4859 has been pushed out from under the cover of the station to an uncovered platform. The GG1 and her caboose are out in the elements in front of the station. I discovered this while railfanning Harrisburg and Enola today. Sorry for the blurry photo, I had my phone as my camera to take it.

LCRU E-Unit Help

Dan Padova ·
I purchased this electronic E-Unit from a fellow forum member some time ago and am finally getting around to installing it in my GG1. At present the GG1 is wired for one direction only. I want to be sure of the correct wiring when I install the E-Unit in the locomotive. I've taken some pictures of what I have at the moment. One thing puzzles me however. There is a nylon stud sticking up from the floor near one end. Also, there seems to be some sort of glue residue on the floor close to the...

Wiring a Pennsy 6-18306 MU Commuter For Overhead Power

Dan Padova ·
I just completed converting my Lionel Pennsy 6-18306 power car to run on overhead catenary. I was able to run a wire through a small hole I drilled in the roof, just under the base of the pantograph. The first test run went flawlessly. I don't expect any issues from here on. However, and here's the oddity. I have a post war ZW transformer. One throttle powers the track while the other powers the catenary. Normally I can run my GG1s and a steam or dies loco at the same time. But when I moved...

Experience with converting MTH Premier 3 Rail to 2 Rail

BruceCampbell ·
The new MTH GG1 looks awesome but only comes in 3 Rail. Does anyone have any experience or know where I can get one converted? Last year I saw John Sethian's speech about conversion at the 2 Rail convention. It sounded doable, but I'm new to this. Thanks, Bruce

GG1 Gets $$$$$

Dan Padova ·
I haven't been here as often as I would like, this summer. Life has a way of occupying one's time, more than we would like, sometimes. It's getting toward the end of the summer season and I have been browsing the O gauge stuff on Ebay. I came across a 2332 black GG1 with a starting price of $.99. The winning bid was $2,888.00 ! I don't know if I would have had the nerve to put a starting price of $.99 on an item like that.

My first MTH locomotive and I’m curious...

CoolHand ·
I just bought my first MTH loco. I have many Lionel, Williams, K-Line, Weaver but I’m new to MTH. I bought a Scale GG1 in Tuscan 5 stripe. The first thing I noticed was the casting for the body is complete garbage. It should never have been painted. It reminded me immediately of the Williams TCA 25th Anniversary GG1 I have. I had to fill and sand and fill and sand it before I could repaint it. The MTH didn’t come with any instructions so the odd noises it made upon startup had me worried.

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...

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.
