Prototype Information
The Pennsylvania Railroad's GG1 class of electric locomotives were built between 1934 and 1943 at the PRR shops in Altoona, Pennsylvania, with a total of 139 units constructed. They remained in service with the PRR’s successors until the early 1980’s. The GG1 became one of the most recognized and famous classes of locomotive worldwide.

While the famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy did not design the shape of the GG1 electric locomotives, he did improve their looks by recommending the use of a smooth, welded construction instead of a riveted assembly, along with a pinstriped paint scheme to highlight their smoothly rounded forms; the "streamlined" style, evoking speedy travel, was popular at the time.

About the Brunswick Green Five-Stripe GG1
The Brunswick Green "Modified Loewy" scheme was used in the 1940's, and was the most commonly used paint scheme on the PRR's GG1's. It had 5 gold pinspripes and gold serif "Clarendon" lettering, and was a refinement of the "as delivered" paint scheme as Loewy first envisioned it.

Model Features
  • Blackened metal Pantographs with three elevation levels (down, low, high)
  • Able to go through a 249mm (9¾”) radius S-Curve
  • Powerful mechanism able to pull a full 15-car Broadway Ltd. Consist up a 4% grade
  • Illuminated + Directional Class lights, headlight, and number boards
  • DCC Friendly mechanism, compatible with the specially designed DN163K1D
  • Shock absorber construction gives even traction and performance, even on the roughest track

GG1 Pennsylvania Rail Road #4872 "Congressional Silver" -
During the 50’s, the Pennsylvania’s “Congressional” trains which operated between New York and Washington D.C. were pulled by six different GG1 locomotives - three of which were painted into a special variation on the single stripe livery in 1955, sporting a silver coat and broad stripe.

Kobo Release #1
Part #: KAT-137-2121KB "Museum of the American Railroad" - Road #: 4902 - GG-1 Electric Locomotive

Click picture to see large view

The then-owned-by-the-PC GG1 #4902 was decorated in a special commemorative gold and blue paint scheme to celebrate the Centennial of the "wedding of the rails", the driving of the Golden Spike which finalized the United States' original transcontinental railroad in 1869. This GG1 pulled the celebratory"Golden Spike Centennial Limited" train during the final leg of its journey in 1969 from Baltimore, MD to New York's Penn Station, arriving there May 18th 1969, the same day that Apollo 10 was making its voyage into Lunar orbit.

Not just paint; the Kobo custom American Railroad GG1 will be modified with redesigned blower ducts that are elevated higher and to the rear of the locomotive number boards. This was done later in the GG1's lifetime to reduce the amount debris that would be sucked into the locomotive as a result of the low body placement, and marks a significant modification that will be done to this model in addition to the paint.

Part #: KAT-137-2015 Conrail "Conrail Bicentennial" - Road #: #4800 - GG-1 Electric Locomotive
Click picture to see large view

Joining the ranks of the GS-4 Bicentennial “American Freedom Train” and the U30C Bicentennial “Spirit of ‘76” comes the GG1 in Conrail’s Bicentennial colors! This locomotive was painted specially for the United States Bicentennial celebrations in 1976 and carries a unique red, white, and blue color scheme adorned with 50 stars on each side and an image of the liberty bell. Scheduled for release next April along with a re-release of the popular PRR Tuscan red five stripe paint scheme GG1 (for use with the still-available PRR Broadway Limited classic name train), this locomotive is sure to make a splash on layouts, whether it’s running on its own or with its bicentennial brothers.

Note: While the prototype GG1 #4800 was a uniquely “riveted” molded GG1, this N scale release will use the same body shell as the standard Pennsylvania GG1

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
