This is my all-time favorite locomotive. I think the GG1 deserves it's own thread.
Pennsylvania Railroad class GG1
I'm blessed that I was able to see them up close as they passed by not far from my home boyhood home.
This is my first of I hope many photos of the GG1, please feel free to add to them.
