Electric Avenue

I wish the Henry Ford would move it. It will then be 5 miles from me.

Ending the GG-1 a bit

It should be noted the NYC S & T class electrics used third rail power, and not catenary like the PRR and MW electrics. The small tunnel pantographs were used on the many crossover switch tracks under GCT to maintain electrical continuity.

 Where were these photos taken? Do you have any showing the locomotive number?

Upstate NY.

I thought so -- they're in Cooperstown Junction (near Maryland, NY), about 35 miles from my house. One is now owned by the Henry Ford Museum. I don't know if it has been moved yet.

Ending the GG-1 a bit soon spoiled a spring break trip and I never got to see one run.

I wish the Henry Ford would hurry it up. It will be 5miles away once there.

Contrary to popular belief,  the Washington,  DC subway opened in 1953, not 1976.

You really have it in for GG-1’s, don’t you, Mitch!!!

This was the ultimate scrounge... the engine was removed, rebuilt, and ran for another 30 years.

If the GG1 was the only locomotive to have ever been built, I would be like a pig in sh*t.  At the moment I own 9 examples, both Lionel and K-Line.  All semi-scale.
