N GG1 PRR Tuscan Red 5-Stripe #4909

The GG1, one of the PRR's most famous and recognizable locomotives, is also one of the most curiously designed. The GG1 is technically two 4-6-0 (G) locomotives under one shell, adding up to a 4.6k horsepower behemoth that was staggeringly powerful and fast even by today's standards. The Tuscan Red five-stripe paint scheme was, for all intents and purposes, exactly the same as the more common Brunswick Green "Modified Loewy" paint scheme, simply substituting the green for the PRR’s signature Tuscan Red color. This paint scheme was introduced in 1952, and in the end was worn by 10 of the GG1s in service on the PRR.

    Product features:
  • Specially designed to pull a full 16 car Broadway Limited Consist up a 4% grade.
  • Blackened metal Pantographs.
  • Able to navigate a 249mm (9 ¾”) radius S-Curve.
  • Shock absorber construction gives even traction and performance, even on the roughest track.
  • Illuminated + Directional Class lights, headlight, and number boards.
  • DCC Friendly mechanism.
