Lionel used this engine to test out many innovative features that would be used on other production locomotives.
It is beyond the scope of this identification guide to list all of the variations of this engine that Lionel produced. The EP-5 was introduced in 1956, and was a credible copy of the General Electric EP-5 rectifier, which ran on the New Haven Railroad. There are no numbers in the number boards, however, Lionel painted their production number on the side of each of these units. The Lionel Lines 80-Ton Box Cab was made without any of Lionel’s premium features for the more economical O27 Scale train sets beginning in 1956. The following history leading to the formation of EBMES was posted by Ken Shattock, past member, on the Trainorders Forum, "Model Railroading", in December 2008. In 1930 there was a group of modelers who were interested in a variety of models: electric trains, steam-powered trains, boats, race cars and model airplanes.
Besides having their own private meetings, the "Guild" would also put on public displays of their models to let the general public see what their organization was all about and to possibly attract new members. The following five photos show some of these early public displays in the windows of San Francisco department stores. The last photo depicts larger sized models, including Live Steam, that were on display for the general public.
The following reminiscences and pictures from the Sante Fe Railroad's brochure from the Exposition were also provided by Ken Shattock. In 1939 and 1940, the "Golden Gate International Exposition" was held on man-made Treasure Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay, just North of "Yerba Buena Island" and the Bay Bridge. Several railroads had displays and model layouts in the large fair building known as "VACATIONLAND" .


A combination of "professionals" and EBMES members created an O-scale layout on the 3300 sq.ft table.
The equipment used in the Santa Fe exhibit took over a year to build from plans and specifications furnished by the Santa Fe.
Let's go back in time for just a moment to the year 1939 and see what greeted visitors to the grand SANTA FE diorama.
Recently (September 2009), we found a cache of old 4x5 negatives in a dusty old file cabinet in our (Pt.Richmond) library. Here is a detailed description and more photos of the Halleck Street layouts, courtesy of Ken Shattock, past member. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Although Lionel produced these originally with GOLD striping, oxidization and a chemical reaction to the overcoat that they used caused this striping to turn BLACK and sometimes SILVER.
Collectors are respectfully urged to seek outside sources before purchasing a GG-1 engine in which they may have doubts about its authenticity. 2350 was in production for three years (1956-58) and during this period Lionel had problems in painting the complex colored pattern on the front of these engines.
The moulded plastic pantograph is particularly vulnerable to damage, and because it is easily removed this piece is often found missing today.
Lionel made only one of these with the striking BLUE and YELLOW colors of the Virginian Railroad. It looked and felt like a World's Fair but it was mainly a special celebration being held because of the completion of the Golden Gate Bridge and the SF-Oak Bay Bridge.. An oval platform, 60 feet in length, 10 feet in height and 6 feet in width, was raised in the center of a 3300 sq.ft. The equipment was designed to operate 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, without repair or overhaul.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
Another reason is that it had a relatively long production life, spanning the years 1947 to 1963. Engines that have been found new in the box show the original color to be GOLD, but they also show faded central striping. Being in production only two years, this electric locomotive is undervalued today due to the lack of demand by collectors. They were headquartered in San Francisco and published a monthly bulletin for the members, known as "The Guildsman".


One of the department stores in San Francisco that participated with these displays was the "Emporium" on Market Street.
Lionel scaled down the length of this engine and removed the flanges on the center driving axles so that it would be able to negotiate their 31 inch diameter O Gauge track. One major controversy is that Lionel produced some of the early engines in a flat BLACK color instead of the normal BRUNSWICK GREEN. Also, stresses placed upon the body through handling caused cracks at the ends where the body was attached to the chassis.
Not particularly attractive engine, the prototype was designed to haul lengthy coal loads over the Appalachian mountains, which was not a glamourous job to begin with. So cleverly was the landscape blended into the panorama that together they presented an illusion of the great distances of the Southwest. The GG-1 was the first to carry Lionel’s rich history of producing electric locomotives into the post-war era.
Refer to the Track Identification Page for details on locomotive and rolling stock compatibility. Some had poorly applied rubber-stamp SILVER keystones and stripes rather than paint or decals. These problems were partially illeviated when Lionel made a front adhesive decal that at least would cover up the damage. A one-half actual size replica of a diesel-electric locomotive of the type used to draw the Super Chief, El Capitan and other stainless steel streamlined trains of the Santa Fe, sat atop the panorama platform. Pacific’s, Consolidations and 3 big Texas-types… All locomotives were powered by 12 volt,DC motors, geared in such a way that speeds seemed in actual proportion with the prototypes. Adding to the confusion is the fact that some of the BRUNSWICK GREEN GG-1 examples also had rubber-stamped keystones instead of decals. This decal has been applied to many of these units over the years and engines with pristine painted ends are hard to find. The model was 35 feet long, 7 ? feet high and 5 feet wide, symbolizing the progressive character of the Santa Fe Railway. Beware of reproduction or repaints of the rare variation that will have the letters silk screened on.
All of the original shells will show evidence of heat-stamped letters which is what Lionel used on all of these engines.
