All it needs is the lettering
Title:  All it needs is the lettering
Description:  NJT 4883 was one of two GG 1s that retained their Pennsy appearance, minus lettering, until retirement. I believe the other was 4880, someone who knows, please correct me. This one even had a PRR keystone below the headlights. There was a fan in Jersey with connections to NJ DOT who had magnetic letters made up to spell out "PENNSYLVANIA" that he posed the engine with on at least one occasion. It looked SHARP in the late 60's Scotchlite image.

Dutch door riding
Title:  Dutch door riding
Description:  Back in the era of older equipment, it was possible to ride in the open Dutch door, something that would probably get you arrested now. It was a great way to watch the action, and always had a good breeze
