| It has been said that Josh Cowen's favorite locomotive was the New York Central's J-Class 4-6-4 Hudson. The pride of the NYC's fleet, it could be seen pulling both passenger cars and freight along its namesake river.With its classic steam locomotive styling, there is little doubt as to why the Hudson was picked as the model for Lionel's landmark 1937 700E Hudson. A marvel of its time, it was a perfect O scale replica unlike any the marketplace had seen. And at $75.00, it had to be! As the centerpiece of our 100th Anniversary Centennial celebration, we are offering the 700E once again, but this time with something unique - brilliant 24 karat gold plating, fitting for this special occasion.Besides the die-cast gold-plated locomotive and tender bodies, you find gold- and platinum-plated accents. Additional details will remain black, to provide contrast against the bright gold bodies. All of Lionel's traditional operating features, including a Pullmor motor, RailSounds and Command Control are offered.There is only one chance in a lifetime to celebrate Lionel's Centennial. And there is only one true 700E.
