PRR 4800, GG-1, c. 1961
Title:  PRR 4800, GG-1, c. 1961
Description:  Electric Action. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide via Al Chione. Shown here (L to R) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #4800 and #4887. Both are GG-1 (2-C-C-2) electric locomotives rated at 4,620 horsepower each. #4800 was built by General Electric as number "4899" during August of 1934, renumbered "4800" in November of 1934, and presently on display at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg. In this photo, it looks to me like "Old Rivets" is deadlined. What's missing? #4887 was built in Juniata during April of 1939. The photographer's name, the date, and the location are not recorded.
