See, this is why every boat anchor needs to look like a locomotive

    I need one of those to move some boat anchors around.

    Unfortunately, most have been scrapped.

    Somewhere on the Internet (RRPictures Archive, perhaps) is a shot or two of a bunch of GG1s in a deadline, being pulled through Kent, Ohio to a scrapper in Indiana. There's an interesting story behind the pictures and the mixup which caused them to be.

    You mean a GG-1? They could pull almost anything. Although rated 4620 HP, that was continuous rating. Short term (15 minutes), they'd do over 8500 HP.

    16 of them survive in museums. 4935 and 4800 are at Strasburg IIRC, painted "as God and the Pennsylvania Railroad intended". 139 were built, and there just weren't enough museums to take all of them.

    4876 had the distinction of being built twice.

    I don't know, I love the look of the SX-42. A Lowey design. Hell ... it won an international design award from New York's Museum of Modern Art. Yeah ... a bit odd in it's layout, but it's pretty ... even in the dark. And it's not a bad receiver either.
