Called Ol' Rivets, it was the only one of its class painted in Conrail's blue scheme.

PRR 4800, nicknamed "Old Rivets", is a GG1-class electric locomotive located at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, outside of Strasburg, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is the prototype GG1 and was originally numbered 4899. Built by General Electric in 1934, the locomotive competed against a prototype, the R1, built by rival company Westinghouse. 4800 was kept in service by the Pennsylvania Railroad and its successors, Penn Central and Conrail, until 1979.

The electric had many paint schemes over the years, but the most famous was the 1976 Bicentennial scheme celebrating America's 200th birthday.
