    I have the one that PMI had but they no longer have it. The last time I talked to PMI he said that model was out of print. I think this engine is a work of art. It would be nice to see some of the differnt paint marking used on them.

    Do a google search for "Ray Morris Locomotives", I believe he has a 440 on one of the CD's he is selling.
    I found this link...www.cardmodelers.org/Loco's/card_models.htm

    The Mole didn't specify the scale he was looking for... And you have recently posted pics of your William Crooks 440... wouldn't that be a substitute for The General? And at that scale who could tell the difference?

    well...don't I feel silly...of course!
    Try Micromodels set f2 part 1 the 1861 William Crooks wood burning Locomotive...I suggested the General because the model has a nice paint job. The Crooks loco that I built a while back was a repaint I did (not the tiny one). The origional model is all dark green-almost black. I repainted it to show the reds , greens and golds Heighway somehow neglected. Ray Morris did a fine job with his general. Take your pick...
