Former PC/PRR GG-1 4877, repainted in Tuscan Red in 1981, rests at the South Amboy engine terminal in April, 1983. Just 6 months later, "Big Red" would be honored to pull the last run of the GG-1. Sadly, it was not to be as a breakdown forced sister GG-1 4879 to rescue the train. This beautiful GG-1 was preserved (in as-built Brunswick green) along with her sister unit 4879 as part of the United Railroad Historical Society of NJ collection in Boonton, NJ.
