4876 is a GG1-class electric locomotive located at the B&O
Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It was built
in 1939 and was involved in the only accident to befall a GG1. In
1953, the locomotive overran the buffer stop and crashed into Union
Station in Washington, D.C. after its brakes failed. A temporary
concourse floor was erected over 4876 (which had broken through the
original) for the upcoming inauguration of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
After the inauguration it was shipped back to Altoona,
Pennsylvania, for repairs and placed back into service.
