Remarks & Notes 
Engineer Harry A. Wilgis at the throttle of his DC-bound E-60 during a brief station stop. Note the cab signal over his left shoulder. Harry was the engineer of the first revenue run of Amtrak's restored PRR GG1 4935 on May 15, 1977. A brief quote from Karl R. Zimmermann's "The Remarkable GG1," about that day: "Then all that remained was for engineer Harry Wilgis, a 36-year veteran (who thus had two years' seniority on his GG1), to make a perfect run to New York with No. 4935 on "The Murray Hill," and for thousands at trackside to watch, photograph, and hail the rebirth."
