Andrew and a group of Union raiders commandeered the Souths American 4-4-0, named The General, from the Western and Atlantic Railroad. Their daring plan was to sabotage rebel railroad lines deep behind enemy lines. An alert W&ARR conductor, William Fuller, noticed the locomotive moving and with two fellow employees was soon in hot pursuit through the mountains of Northern Georgia. They followed The General on foot until they were able to commandeer another locomotive, The Texas, to continue the chase.
After many stops to uproot track and cut telegraph lines, The General ran out of wood fuel and water and was abandoned. Andrews Raiders were later captured outside Chattanooga. Some were able to escape from jail, but eight were hung as spies. The youngest of the Raiders, 19-year-old Jacob Parrott, was the first soldier awarded the Medal of Honor by Secretary of War Stanton.The General train set lets you experience all the excitement of this historic adventure.
