Bachmann HO scale Sound Value GG1

Bachmann HO scale Sound Value GG1
Bachmann HO scale Sound Value GG1
GG1s have been riding the model rails almost as long as they did the prototype railroads. Bachmann Trains has added an HO scale model of Raymond Loewy’s Pennsylvania RR masterpiece to their Sound Value line. The dual-mode-decoder-equipped model operates with sound on direct-current (DC) and Digital Command Control (DCC) layouts.

Well-documented prototype. The GG1 has been well-documented over the years, so I’ll hit the highlights of this classic heavy electric. Built from 1934 to 1943, the 139-unit fleet was erected at PRR’s Altoona shops, with the exception of the first 15 locomotives, built by General Electric (GE). Major castings came from Baldwin subsidiary General Steel Castings, and electrical equipment came from GE and Westinghouse.
