NYC J3a Hudson
A Lionel model train classic, and most known for powering “The 20th Century Limited” aka “The Most Famous Train in the World”, Chief Mechanical Engineer Paul Kiefer’s 4-6-4 J was considered an excellent locomotive design. Named after the Hudson River, the Hudsons incorporated many of Lima’s Super Power designs such as a (4) wheel booster equipped trailing truck, increased boiler pressure and an enlarged firebox; ensuring that they’d never run out of steam at high speeds. The J3a’s were the final (50) of the total (275) Hudsons built. They were also the most powerful; producing 4700HP at 77mph. They most famously powered the 17 car: “20th Century Limited” 958 miles along the “Water Level Route” from New York to Chicago in just under 16 hours.
Unfortunately, none of the NYC’s (275) Hudsons produced were salvaged.
