Pennsylvania RailRoad GG-1 Electric Locomotive - 1950's Educational Film - S88TV1
"Wheels Of Steel" featuring the GG-1 electric locomotive. The Pennsylvania Railroad ( PRR) was an American railroad, founded in 1846. The PRR was the largest railroad by traffic and revenue in the U.S. throughout the first two-thirds of the twentieth century and was at one time the largest publicly traded corporation in the world. At its peak, it controlled about 10,000 miles (16,000 km) of rail line; in the 1920s it carried about three times the traffic (measured by ton-miles of freight) as other railroads of comparable length, such as Union Pacific or Santa Fe. This publicity film from the Pennsylvania RailRoad (PRR) released in the early 1950's focuses on the mighty GG-1 electric locomotives. Shows the trains in action as well as 'behind the scenes'. A total of 140 GG-1 electric locomotives were constructed by its designer General Electric and the Pennsylvania's Altoona Works from 1934 to 1943. The locomotives were incredibly powerful with 4,620 hp (3,450 kW) available continuously, and 8000 hp (6000 kW) available for short durations. The locomotives had a top speed of 160km/h (100 miles per hour). Initially introduced into service by the Pennsylvania in 1935, the GG1 was operated by its successor companies—Penn Central, Conrail and Amtrak. The last GG1 was retired from service by New Jersey Transit in 1983. Most of the GG1s were scrapped, but several were preserved by various museums around the United States . .

The Milwaukee Road in Montana
Today, it's a fallen flag railroad, but it was once one of the most unique rail lines in the United States. The Milwaukee Road, which ran from Chicago to the Pacific Northwest, operated as an electrified line in Montana up until June of 1974. Photographer Ted Pope captured the last 4 days of the electric operations before the line switched to full diesel operations. The territory you will see in this video runs between Deer Lodge and Harlowton, Montana. Several scenes feature in-cab footage in the Little Joes as the trains travel through Sixteen Mile Canyon and the scenic Jefferson Canyon. They're places so remote, you can only see them by rail! Get ready to enjoy historic footage of these magnificent electric locomotives pulling heavy freight across the beautiful Montana Mountain landscape! For Milwaukee Road fans, this era represents the Milwaukee at its best! Be a part of this historic time period and enjoy the great action of The Milwaukee Road in Montana! Running time 72 minutes, color/silent films with music and narration. Copyright 2011, C. Vision Productions/Ted Pope
