Former PRR GG1 4877
Title:  Former PRR GG1 4877
Description:  The April, 1983 lineup of GG1's would not be so long for much longer at South Amboy. Former PRR GG-1 4877, repainted in Tuscan Red in 1981, rests second in a line of Gs at the engine terminal. Just 6 months later, "Big Red" would be honored to pull the last run of the GG-1. Sadly, it was not to be as a breakdown forced sister GG-1 4879 to rescue the train. This beautiful GG-1 was preserved (in as-built Brunswick green) along with her sister unit 4879 as part of the United Railroad Historical Society of NJ collection in Boonton, NJ.

GG1 Out to Pasture: 4877 at Perth Amboy, 1983
Title:  GG1 Out to Pasture: 4877 at Perth Amboy, 1983
Description:  After GG1s were retired from their main NY-Washington stomping grounds, the best place to find them was on their daily commuter runs between NY and South Amboy. On this summer day in 1983, just a few months before all GG1s would be retired, 4877 GG1 4877, repainted in PRRs classic tuscan red color scheme, drifts light through the station at Perth Amboy, New Jersey, in a cut overflowing with lush growth. Check out all that classic jointed Pennsy rail.

Queen of the festival
Title:  Queen of the festival
Description:  For a number of years, NJ Transit hosted an event called the Hoboken Festival at the ex DLW station there. They would bring in a variety of equipment for display, not only their own, but M&E and Amtrak as well. The queen of the fleet, restored GG 1 4877, of course had to be towed in, along with all the other AC powered trains, since it would not run on the DLW 3000 volt DC power then in place. It still looked good. One has to wonder, had the Gs lasted long enough to make it into the AC era on the DLW, how they would have looked rolling down the three track main through Harrison, or pulling into Summit.
