The famous GG1 locomotive was once the workhorse between New York City , Washington DC, and Harrisburg. Initially built to haul heavy passenger trains at top speed, some were also regeared for freight service. They were introduced as part of the Pennsylvania Railroad’s massive 1930s project to electrify the line (install an infrastructure of overhead electric "catenary" wires to power the engines). Electrification was the solution to moving more trains with more cars and faster acceleration than steam locomotives could handle. The catenary, partly financed by the Federal government during the Great Depression as an economy stimulus, is still used today by Amtrak. Through their lives, the 139 GG1s were painted in various colors, with the Brunswick green (almost black) the most remembered.
On June 10, 2012 the Pennsylvania heritage unit made its first journey to the Northern New Jersey Shared Assets area. We had the chance to get an up close and personal view of the engine in Croxton Yard thanks to our friends at Norfolk Southern. In this exclusive video we will take you for an inside look at the Pennsylvania Heritage unit. Throughout the video you will see the engine starting up, the prime mover itself, as well as the many things inside the cab itself that can not be seen from the outside. We truly hope you enjoy this special video of the Pennsylvania Heritage unit, opportunities like this don’t come around too often so we’re thankful we were able to document this video for our fellow rail enthusiasts. At the end of the cab tour we included a clip of NS 8102 leading H8K out of Croxton Yard in the last hour of daylight. Seeing the engine actually pulling a train was definitely the icing on the cake for this phenomenal day!

Question by colts_rock_1: how do you hook lionel pennsylvania flyer train tracks up to the transformer where you control it .?
i lost the directions i have the cord to connect the two but i dont know how
Answer by Dilbert It should be obvious from the cord. Does it any bare wires, or just connectors? If it just has connectors, they aren’t likely to fit the wrong way, so you just connect them whatever way they fit, and it should work fine. If it has any bare wires, there should be screw terminals or post terminals for them. You just loosen those, wrap the bare end of the wire, and tighten. You’re really not likely to get it wrong, so just try it, how it looks like it ought to go, and see if it works.
