Had my Hudson for over 2 years now. As everyone knows these are very heavy die cast engines. Good adjustable sound system and plenty of smoke although the chimney stack needs a sharp 'blow down' to discharge air locks occasionally. My engine has never gone wrong in the time I have had it.

Greg,[/b] You need one. I have had mine since the day they came out. I like it alot. It had two of the original smoke unit burn up, and the wiring, so I install a Aristo unit. The only other problem I have had was the gear box came loose and almost stripped the gears. I have ran it several time on 8'curves. Thanks Rex

Sounds good. The factory assembled the smoke unit so it could ground on the frame and short out... first thing to do with a Hudson is open it up and insulate the mounting... gave a bad rap the the smoke unit, which is a good one... better than the Aristo, a TAS unit...

Got any extras Nick?

Regards, Greg

No extras Greg, but i can tell you all insulation issues have been solved with smoke units, no wiring issues and NO gear box issues. all my Hudsons are 2nd run and better production runs. they run flawless as exspected. i do know a good place to find a good deal on these.....

GREAT IDEA - I'd even cross the Hudson River to get me a Hudson (or a GG-1).


But then I would have to put in DCS to make more sounds...

If you put more sound into that, you will loose your neighbours.

Goodbye and good luck!

One day I hope to get one too. I saw it in person and love it. Also liked seeing it's performance in Nicholas' video. Another must-have when I get the money.
