Yeah, I did manage to find that site, think it was before I found the video I posted. I also found this site, http://local.trainz.com/articles/general.html, which goes into a long history of Lionel and the General. This was actually the version that started the thread, http://www.lionel.com/Products/Finder/ProductDetail.cfm?ProductNumber=6-38658&expandBranch=0&Keywords=&CategoryID=175&RailLineID=&CatalogId=. As you can see it's the 2008 version from the previous link. I don't know, that shade of green just seems off to me, the way it looks at Kennesaw is a better scheme. But a very dark forest green where the red is would also work. I mean a different shade of red, something closer to a pink, would be the same as the green on that Lionel page.

I don't know, I'd just like to find something that tells what the original scheme might have been, says the scheme at Kennesaw is a return to the original paint scheme or that it was originally an all black color. But like you say, maybe that doesn't exist. Still I'm gonna keep looking.
