A few years ago we were blessed with not one but two 44 ton diesels. The first versions of these little work horses with great detail and scale size. Williams with a great price and MTH with their wonderful sound system and electronics. Williams only made one batch of them and now MTH will stop selling when their business closes down. Many of us waited many years for someone make a small scale diesel that could be street run or look at home on a small layout. Sad to see them go. Don

I don't understand what Bachmann are playing at? Y ou say the (Bachmann) Williams 44-tonner, injection-molded beauty, even if it is only 3-rail, has been done as a single batch and their nice On30 center-cab Whitcomb was quickly out of stock. Saved me some money though!!
It would have been interesting if they made dummy units. Don
Don are you still having fun with your Ultimaker2? In your thread here in April 2018 you said you might write up what you were doing. My son talked me into going halves on an Elegoo 3d resin printer. I think my 5-year old Grandson will be using it before me. Any software tips??
Still having fun with it. I'm making things around the house right now. Also will make more steeple cab parts next. Don
The MTH GE 44 Ton locomotives are the right size for my single-track 10'-by-5' layout - running slowly and pulling a short train. I bought New Haven and Boston & Maine versions.
Note that these models represent two versions of the GE 44 Ton locomotive. B&M #117 is an early version with louvers on the sides of the hoods that was delivered in 1942. New Haven #0807 and #0815 are a later version with louvers at the ends of the hoods, delivered in 1945.
