A. D. Imfeld Co. PRR GG1 in S gauge -- 1984?

Are you familiar with this GG1 in S gauge?  Apparently it didn't last long on eBay.  Did one of you buy it?  What's it like?  Were many made?  Not that I don't like my TMCC/Legacy converted AM GG1, just curious about cottage created products of our paSt.

I've had a sighting of one in Tuscan red, very crude by today's standard, even somewhat crude for the 1980's.  Could classify as a "blunt instrument."   I would guess there were 50 or less made. 

But, it was the only GG1 available in S at the time, and there wasn't any hint coming from American Models which introduced their GG1 in 1995.

Thanks Rusty.  I appreciate your additional info and agree with your assessment.  Fun to learn more about S history.  Wonder what it's like to operate -- smooth, rough, noisy, quiet, strong, or weak?
