Bachmann 56604 HO Scale 4-6-4 Dreyfus Hudson Steam Loco New York Central NYC 5452 with DCC WOWSound
Entering service in 1938, the Streamlined Hudson was one of several locomotives that would come to define the Art Deco period of design. While the locomotive remained mechanically identical to previous, non-streamlined Hudsons, the styling by industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss updated the external cladding to rival the modem appearance of its early-diesel peers. The locomotive and matching passenger car sets were primarily used on the prestigious 20th Century Limited between New York and Chicago until being phased out in favor of diesel power in 1945. The Bachmann Dreyfuss Streamlined Hudson arrives with all of the authentic and interactive features found on the standard J3a Hudson, including dual-mode TCS WOWSound" DCC with CD-quality audio, a Keep Alive" device for uninterrupted performance, and Chuffinity™ technology for prototypical load-based chuff intensity.
