November 2, 2005 - M.T.H. Electric Trains has begun shipping the latest renditions of its updated Premier Line GG-1 Electric Locomotives to M.T.H. Authorized Retailers.

The GG-1 could be called the Gold Standard for electric locomotives, with its unparalleled longevity and road performance. Its incredible performance record is probably due to the fact that it had to compete for its spot on the Pennsy roster. When the PRR was in the market for a new high-speed passenger locomotive, it was given two prototypes to consider. The GG-1, based on the New Haven EP3, defeated the R1 in the contest to determine which engine Pennsy would order, and so began the engine's unparalleled dominance.

The only scale GG-1 that includes conventional remote controlled Proto-Couplers and Proto-Speed Control that really works, GG-1 fans wonメt find a better operating model anywhere. During operation, the pantographs will automatically raise and lower themselves depending on locomotive direction. Movement is accompanied by sound and smoke for an incredibly realistic operating experience.




The operating pantographs can operate in both conventional or command control environments. A switch located under the chassis allows the user to select overhead or track power.



The die-cast GG-1 also features bi-directional marker lights that automatically change from red to green depending on which direction the engine is travelling. Additional details include opening side cab doors, enhanced detail around the end-of-cab doors, lift rings on the roof and an operating smoke unit that simulates steam generator pressure releases.
