Famous Engine Leads Postwar Trains

The Pennsylvania GG-1 has reached iconic status in the railroad world. Many railfans recognize its unique aerodynamic profile at a distance. Part of that is due to its ubiquity on the PRR New York to Washington electrified corridor. Pennsy operated a fleet of 139 GG-1s over the 650 route miles. Postwar train collecting also made the GG-1 famous. Many train sets from the 1950s were led by this double bullet engine. We have reproduced two of them using the latest technology to offer K-LINE quality and K-LINE affordability. Both GG-1s are equipped with Lionel RailSounds, TrainMaster Command Control and Electrocouplers for superior command operation.

The first features the Black Jack GG-1. This distinctive black engine carries five gold stripes and a red Pennsylvania keystone. It hauls four tuscan brown 15-inch Heavyweights that have very familiar names: Manhattan, Madison, Irvington and Hillside. Any postwar collector recognizes those names as the office and factory locations of a well-known toy train company. An additional 2-PAC of cars are available, based on archival models from the 1950s that were never produced.
