General Information

Lionel produced two General-style locomotives during the postwar era -- the 1862 and 1872. For each locomotive, its cooresponding instruction sheet is difficult to find.

Even though Lionel catalogued the General steam locomotive for four years (1959 - 1962), there is only one known printing of its instruction sheet -- dated November 1959.
