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 . .
