This Kato N Scale GG1 Electric is based on the legendary locomotives built for the Pennsylvania Railroad beginning in the 1930s. The long-lived GG1 developed 4,600 horsepower and operated for the Pennsy in a variety of schemes and pulled legendary passenger trains like the Broadway Limited as well as long freights. Styled by noted industrial designer Raymond Loewy, their curved lines were instantly recognizable. GG1s served PRR and successors PC and CR as well as several commuter agencies with the last ones being retired in the late 1980s. Features of this locomotive include a detailed, injection-molded body, five-pole motor with dual flywheels, all-driver electrical pickup, heavy die cast metal chassis, a lighting control board that can be swapped for a DCC decoder when you're ready (available separately), fine decoration, directional LED headlights and Kato magnetic knuckle couplers. The GG1 will handle curves as sharp as 9-3/4" radius, but larger curves are recommended. This GG1 is one of several Kato N Scale electric locomotives.
