Remarks & Notes 
Probably the easiest assignment of all-time for a GG-1 was the 1-car Washington Section of the National Limited. This train was a bit elusive, running Mon-Wed-Fri, leaving Washington at 12:30 p.m. and arriving in Harrisburg at 3:55. It's seen here passing an eastbound Conrail freight on a very warm Monday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend. Today, there's a hiking trail just to the left of the photo, near the base of Chickies Rock, and Lake Siding remains, but the old PRR position-light signals are gone. The 910 was built by PRR/GE in December, 1941, as the PRR 4910.
