CR GG1 The first Pennsylvania Railroad GG1 entered service in 1935. The GG1 received its famous style-lines from industrial designer Raymond Loewy and is probably one of the most famous locomotives of the 20th Century. A total of 139 units were constructed in PRR's shops between 1935 and 1944. PRR assigned their GG1's to series 4800-4938, which PC and CR retained. While mostly associated with passenger service on the Northeast Corridor and the old PRR Mainline between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, PA, the GG1 was also a major freight locomotive. Conrail removed all their GG1's from service in 1979 but several lingered on roster for another year at least.

Comprehensive Roster [Download PDF Version ]
The roster below is comprehensive for these units between April 1976 and the last unit's retirement in the early 1990s, and contains all predecessor units of the locomotive class that Conrail inherited. If numbers are missing from the roster, Conrail intentionally left them open. It does not contain retirement dates and dispositions due to their complex nature. All of the units were retired in 1979.
