PRR GG1 Roster


Robert Schoenberg
"Based primarily on the design of the earlier, less successful P5a, the magnificent GG1, with it's 2-C+C-2 wheel arrangement and articulated frame, proved so impressive in its initial tests in 1933, that between the years 1934 and 1943, a total of 139 units were built. For the next half-century, this powerful and aesthetically pleasing marvel could be found at the head-end of the majority of passenger and freight traffic that ran up and down the Northeast Corridor. Although the last revenue run of a GG1 took place in the early 1980's, for many of us who grew up with her sleek beauty and quiet power, the 'G' will always have its own special place in our hearts and memories". - Harv Kahn
