Harder Than It Looks

Trying to get "rolling roster" shots of the incomparable GG1 at speed was quite difficult.
Here's a pair of attempts.

The 4873 was working Penn Central commuters Westbound into Newark Penn station.

Harrison, New Jersey.
October, 1974.

And Amtrak's 923 is also Westbound.

Harrison, New Jersey.
October, 1974.

Glad you gave it a try. Thanks for sharing the outcome. Riding a GG1 at speed during the summer was a noisy, dusty affair. Wish I could do it again.

GG1s at speed were incomparable! You did a great job of capturing them at their best.

 I like both photos! I've also noticed the paint jobs---just the sides got painted and relettered....
