Steve and Judy aboard the last run of the GG-1, 1981

One last GG-1 photo for the archives. This one, taken in October 1981, shows Judy and Steve in the cab of GG-1 #4935 in PRR livery on the day of the last run for NJ Transit, the day the engine’s main power transformer blew out on the return trip from Newark to Matawan, and the excursion train had to be towed back to Newark from Rahway. Sad end to a magnificent motor!

Photo credit for this shot goes to Don Campbell, my much beloved first boss on the railroad and mentor.
