As the 1920s progressed, the need for faster, more powerful locomotives to pull the 20th
Century Limited and other famous trains along the New York Central’s
routes become clear. The American Locomotive Company fulfilled that need
in 1927, as the 4-6-4 Hudson type entered service along its namesake
Hudson River. The Hudson became an iconic symbol of both the New York
Central and fast, luxury rail travel.
Factory-set for 4-6-4 maximum realism and equipped with an Econami™ SoundTraxx® steam
package, the locomotive offers a choice of 16 whistles, multiple
variations of 6 bell types, 4 prototypical chuffs, 5 air pumps and 4
dynamos, plus cylinder cocks, grade-crossing signal, blowdown, brake
squeal/release, coupling/uncoupling, water stop, and "All aboard"/ coach
doors—all in 16-bit polyphonic sound. Visit your favorite hobby
retailer to add this engine to your N scale layout today!
