PRR GG1 4846
Title:  PRR GG1 4846
Description:  PRR half GG1 (perhaps it's a G1) 4846 at Wilmington, Delaware, on an unknown day in April 1979, photo by Chuck Zeiler. I happened upon this while passing through Wilmington on a business trip. It appears to have a duct directed towards the track at the rear of the unit, suggesting that perhaps it was used to clear snow in the yard. Although this is in the Conrail timeframe, it is unlikely this unit was on the CR roster. One source indicates that this was once #4846.

PRR GG1 4846
Title:  PRR GG1 4846
Description:  Former PRR GG1 4846 at the shops, Wilmington, Delaware on an unknown day in April 1979, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. I'm not sure what this was, sometimes you shoot first and ask questions later. I failed to ask the obvious question after shooting this photo, so here's my best guess: There appears to be a duct pointing toward the track, I would suppose that it was to clear the track of snow. One source indicates that this was once #4846 and that it was converted to a snowblower for the Wilmington Shops.

Title:  PRR 1/2 GG1 4846
Description:  Former PRR GG1 4846 at the shops in Wilmington, Delaware on an unknown day in May 1979, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. One story claims this was salvaged from a wreck in 1967 and converted to a snow blower for the Wilmington Shops. The snow blower was scrapped in 1983.
