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.

These repaint rosters are my attempt to discover how long a predecessor ran in its original paint scheme and when Conrail painted it blue for the first time. All dates listed are the earliest and latest the unit was seen in that paint scheme. Dates often change as new photos are examined. If I know for certain that a date is the absolute earliest or latest, then I mention this in the notes. This is a constant work in progress aimed at helping those of us who model the transition era get our consists looking reasonably accurate for blue, stenciled, and original paint scheme ratios.
