This is Bachmann 65304 HO GG-1 PRR #4872 Congressional/sil,red stripe/DCC Sound. GG1 electric, DCC and sound, Pennsylvania Railroad #4872 (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: Sound Value SoundTraxx sound package with prototypical motors with blowers, pantograph extension and retraction, air compressors, short and long horns, and bell-all in 16-bit polyphonic sound 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 Performs best on 22 radius curves or greater
