gg1 at harrisburg station

this week, I have been cruising the video of Pennsylvanian from phila to Pittsburgh.  

after we left Harrisburg station, probably a mile or so on left was the gg1 & the prr cabin car sitting on a dead-end track.

I knew amtrack desperately needed that track, but to just shove it out of the station and far enough out as to be unseen from station seems just uncaring.  does no one want this symbol of Americana or will amtrack let it sit out discarded and alone and rot? 

I personally cannot afford to move it out here, but some eastern society may want it.  

It was my understanding it was placed at harrisburg station as a monument to the prr.

ramblings of someone who still remembers the prr.

I was in the area this past summer, and went out of my way to see the Enola hump yard in action, and crossed the river to visit the Harrisburg train station, and unexpectedly found # 4859 under the train shed - hope she finds a spot out of the weather soon!

Could you at least capitalize the proper name of the historic electric locomotive you are referring to?

HW, I have it on good authority that the guy is unable to use his pinky fingers to hit the "Shift" key and the letter "G" simultaneously; worse, he's unable to capitalize any letters at all.

Who uses their "pinky"? I type everything with just 2 fingers, i.e. one finger on my left hand and one finger on my right hand. Thus, when I want to have a capsized letter, my left hand finger holds the "shift" key, while I type the letter to be capitalized with my right hand finger. What could be simpler? Yes, it isn't very fast though.

OK, spell check didn't catch that. Should be "capitalized" letter. Like you really didn't know what I meant?

I was disappointed and hurt when you first posted and debated about what to do. 

I am glad I waited, because the whole thing now has a life of its own. 

thank you thank you for making me smile.  

fwiw I type with only one finger.  not smart enough to use two fingers.  one from each hand or both from one hand.  confused yet or do I need to kontimue.

gg2 ???

Can a moderator please check this forum out? I see some serious arguments. One another note, I have been wondering the same about 4859 as I caught her outside back in December. No one apparently knows what is going on and why she’s out in the weather. First snow for the GG1 in a while here in east PA
