The PRR GG1 was arguably one of the finest electric locomotives ever built. Produced from 1934 to 1943, it was powerful, reliable, easy on track, and able to move trains at 100 miles per hour. It pulled passenger and freight trains well into the 1980's and many are saved in museums across the country.
