BLI 7872 (Brass Hybrid) New Haven I-5, #1400, Small Script, Paragon4 Sound/DC/DCC, Smoke, HO


Description

In 1937, the New Haven Railroad received ten 4-6-4 locomotives built by Baldwin. These were the last steam power the road would purchase, and they were certainly the most beautiful. They featured streamlined boilers that were gloss black with stainless steel stripes and trim (aluminum paint on the tenders). They were powered by large 80" Boxpok drivers that were ideal for the speedy Shoreline passenger trains that serviced New Haven and Boston. Many of these routes originated in, or continued to, New York via the New Haven's electrified western end. These locomotives hauled some of the most recognizable extra fare trains in railroading including the Merchants Limited, Senator and Yankee Clipper.

The I-5 Hudsons were originally delivered with al block lettering scheme. Later, a small script scheme was introduced, which was eventually replaced by a large script with a square lettering scheme. We are offering models decorated in all three paint schemes. We will also build two models in New Haven-themed fantasy paint schemes, and one model as a 100% painted brass model.

All of the models have hand-crafted brass boilers, cabs, and tender bodies, and die cast locomotive and tender chassis. Each model comes with our Paragon4 Sound/DC/DCC sound system with synchronized puffing smoke and integral GoPack capacitors.
