CR "Ol' Rivets," GG-1, 1976
Title:  CR "Ol' Rivets," GG-1, 1976
Description:  Here is a postal card entitled "'Ol' Rivets' gussied-up for Bicentennial." No Postmark. Caption On Reverse: "Called 'Ol' Rivets' because she was the first GG-1 built by the Pennsylvania RR, and the only one with riveted seams. Designer Raymond Loewy called for smooth, welded seams in the subsequent 139 copies. This view is from 1976. She now resides, wearing dignified vintage paint, in a proper museum." The photographer is not identified. #4800 is a GG-1 (2-C-C-2) built by General Electric as number "4899" during August of 1934, renumbered "4800" in November of 1934, rated at 4,620 horsepower, and presently on display at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg.

CR GG1 4800 at Harrisburg
Title:  CR GG1 4800 at Harrisburg
Description:  Returning from our first trip to Altoona where hundreds of railfans gathered to see Reading 4-8-4 #2101 round Horseshoe Curve, my friend and I came across a gem resting at the Harrisburg engine terminal. CR GG-1 4800 was resting with sister GG-1s and other former PC electrics in her wild Bicentennial paint scheme! Kodachrome 64 film, a guess at exposure time, and station lights for lighting made for an interesting image of "Old Rivets." On April 12, 1976, the Harrisburg paint shop had added the colorful scheme. Sadly, 4800 was the only GG-1 Conrail deemed worthwhile to repaint into full Conrail colors. All of the other almost ageless CR GG-1s remained in grimy black until their retirement in 1979.
