Lionel pw-2332 black gg-1



The story of the black GG-1's (with gold stripes) is that they were painted only during the 2nd shiift of the 1st night of production. The night plant manager and supervisor came in, saw the new 2332 Green GG-1's that were built on the 1st shift, said they are black on the real railroad (The Pennsy didn't have time to wash them often in 1947) and they agreed to change the color to black. The next day the factory decided not to repaint these so they went down the assmbly line on the 2nd night of production. About 480 were made that night (1 per minute for 8 hours). Black G's with silver stripes were made later
