Remarks & Notes 
Clear Sky Above - On Saturday, February 19, 1983, celebrated Amtrak GG1 4935 made what was expected to be its last trip under Pennsy wires, when two Amtrak GP9 “pumpkins” pulled the big electric from Amtrak’s Wilmington, Delaware shops to the Strasburg Railroad interchange at Leamon Place, Pennsylvania. Here the GG1 is clear of the catenary as the drop is made at Leamon Place. Strasburg’s 44-tonner will pick up the 4925 and deliver it to its new home at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. Twenty six years later, the 4935 would make one more appearance under the wires to visit Washington Union Station for the terminal’s 100th anniversary.
