The Pennsylvania Railroad GG1: Send in the Clowns
Amtrak took seven of the stately Raymond Loewy styled GG1s and painted
them Platinum Mist to which it added an eight inch blue stripe
(reminiscent of the 1955 yellow stripe), black numbers and a black
Helvetica styled "Amtrak". As if this was not gaudy enough both of the
hoods were painted clown nose red.
The seven GG1s painted in this manner were numbers: 902, 905, 906, 909,
924, 926, and 927.

helped to provide a great deal of the information found on this page.
