No, for that matter all 3 railroads HAD electric locos, just not that one.

Not quite what I meant.

Some model companies produced models of GG1s in liveries of railroads that NEVER had o'head, the UP to mention but one.

So there are still more liveries? Interesting, I have never seen them, only the ones I mentioned.
If you see any, pls warn me, I am curious.

Not sure if they're still in production, the ones I mention were about in the 80s, and raised more than a few comments in the Model Railroader magazine letters columns!

The UP version stuck out as it looked SO obvious in Armour Yellow, but I think there was a Conrail version too and at least one other.

Fictional GG1s are also very popular among railroad simulation players. At least there I have seen a bright blue Conrail specimen.

Penn Central, Conrail, Amtrak,and New Jersey Transit are real, after the demise of PRR.
The whif versions, made by Mehano/IHC date from the eighties, like the UP Kit remembers.  I would vey much like to find one. I have to confess I collect the GG-1,  still missing the Milwaukee one, the others aren't too difficult to find, and not too expensive.

I have ALL MR since early fifties up to about 2000, but I am afraid checking 10 years of letters columns is too much for me.... :o

As a (mostly) daily commuter on NJT's Atlantic City Line, which used to be shared between PRR and Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Line (Wiki link here), I'd have loved the line to remain fully electrified to AC and run with GG1s, instead of the GP40PHs Transit runs now.

Well, the GG-1 were getting quite old.  From what I read entered service with the PRR in 1935!
Even if I love old locos,  I am afraid that by the time the last GG1 was retired by New Jersey Transit in 1983, they deserved their retirement.

Isn't there a preserved GG-1 still running somewhere?

[Later] Apparently not, I just checked.  :(

Nothing new here, yet. First attempt to take pics in front of a black BG failed, and there are family affairs that I must take care of first.  :-\

Second attempt to take some pictures in front of a neutral background was more successful, even though I did not worka alot with the light so that the black cardboard still reflects a lot of light. So, here's a first look at the finished/completed CFL Class 3800; scenic pictures will follow, too, but they are more complex to create because I have to make composings from model shots and real life scenes. Tricky. I will post the background story and technical data with these, too.
