Smokey Mountain Model Works of Asheville, NC has beautiful resin kits of the GE 44 tonner in both Phase I and IV in S scale available.
I plan to purchase one for my first S scale locomotive. My proposed layout will start with the old Atlas HO scale "Simplicity & Great Plains" layout. The great thing about modeling in S scale is that it won´t take up much more room than the HO version did when I protolanced the Frisco back in 1962 after I converted from Lionel 027 to HO.
The layout will later expand along my 18 foot long livingroom wall. The newly announced Alpine Division Feed and Grain Supply (their first S scale venture) will proudly occuply some real estate on the S&GP, which will be a Frisco subsidiary "Somewhere in the Texas Panhandle".
Model Railroading is still fun!
