This is Bachmann 65204 HO GG-1 PRR #4872 Congressional/sil,red stripe/DCC Ready. GG1 electric, standard DC, Pennsylvania Railroad #4866 (congressional, silver, red stripe). The GG1, one of the PRR's most famous and recognizable locomotives, is also one of the most curiously designed. Technically two locomotives under one shell (a G class locomotive is a 4-6-0 by PRR specification, therefore the GG1 was two G locomotives in a 4-6-0:0-6-4 arrangement). This added up to a 4.6k horsepower locomotive that was staggeringly powerful, even by today's standards.

Designed in the 20's, built in 30's, and not retired until the 80's, the GG1 had an incredible lifespan (even when they were cut in two and run as GG's) and survives today as a testament to its time in both its unique Loewy-design and overwhelming performance.

Its key features are:
Die-cast frame
12-wheel drive
Twin operating metal pantographs can be powered by overhead wires if desired
Soft white LED directional headlights with dimming fuction
E-Z Mate Mark II couplers
Factory installed 8-pin socket for DCC decoder installation of your choice
Performs best on 22 radius curves or greater
