Description

This classic Lionel GG-1 is a model of the engine considered by many railroad experts to be the best all-around engine ever built. The GG-1 was designed by top industrial designer, Raymond Loewy and first put into passenger service in 1935. The GG-1 can run at over 100 miles per hour with little strain. Some GG-1's are still in Penn Central and Amtrak service.

Lionel's first GG-1 was offered in the 1947 catalog. The first model with magne-traction and twin motors was built in 1950.

Features:

  • O-Gauge, O-Scale
  • Die-cast body
  • Twin Pullmor motors
  • 20 Die-cast wheels
  • Magnetraction
  • 12 powered driving wheels
  • Die-cast trucks

This beauty is in Like New condition and has barely been run. There are only very faint rail marks on the wheels & rollers. There is no damage or defects. We have tested it to make sure that all features work and that it runs properly. Includes the instructions and other paper work. Comes in the original box, shows a little age and includes the Styrofoam inner packing. This is a super nice engine!
