Have received no info since 2/8/02 about a 3 car model of Union Pacific M 10000 marked General Trains Inc...of Chicago(two rail standard gauge), cars measure roughly 21" to 23" each. I have found no info from the forum so far nor from digging back in publications...nor any listing under manufacturers...Would appreciate any info at all

The following is from the tinplate FAQ Part 1 site on the web:

GENERAL TRAINS
Founded by Harry Stearns in Chicago, IL, it produced a model of the Union Pacific M-1000 and a two rail standard gauge track system from 1933-34.

Hi,
I would highly recommend you find a copy of the April 1990 issue of Classic Toy Trains. It has a very lengthy and interesting article about General Trains Inc. and gives you all the information you could ever possibily want to know!
