4800, nicknamed "Old Rivets," is a GG1-class electric locomotive
located at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, outside of
Strasburg, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is the prototype
GG1 and was originally numbered 4899. Built by General Electric in
1934, the locomotive competed against a prototype, the R1, built by
rival company Westinghouse. 4800 was kept in service by the
Pennsylvania Railroad and its successors, Penn Central and Conrail,
until 1979. It was sold the next year to a local chapter of the
National Railway Historical Society. 4800 was dedicated in 1982 at
the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and was designated an Historic
Mechanical Engineering Landmark in 1983.
