Pennsylvania GG-1 Electric


The Broadway Limited now available!
Raymond Loewy designed, the Pride of the Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Railroad's GG1 class of electric locomotives were built between 1934 and 1943 at the PRR shops in Altoona, Pennsylvania, with a total of 139 units constructed. They remained in service with the PRR’s successors until the early 1980’s. The GG1 became one of the most recognized and famous classes of locomotives worldwide.

While the famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy did not design the shape of the GG1 electric locomotives, he did improve their looks by recommending the use of a smooth, welded construction instead of a riveted assembly, along with a pinstriped paint scheme to highlight their smoothly rounded forms; the "streamlined" style, evoking speedy travel, was popular at the time.

GG-1's and Broadway Limited Sets are in stock!

Amtrak GG-1 Electric
Following their run on the Pennsylvania Railroad pulling the Broadway Limited, in the 1970’s many GG1’s continued on in their life running on the Penn Central and then Amtrak, pulling everything from freight to early Amtrak Superliners. Many of these locomotives continued to operate well into the 1980’s – their nearly 50 year lifespan a tribute to how powerful and effective this locomotive truly was.
