|The scale Hudson, introduced in 1937, is the finest piece ever made by Lionel. Graced with meticulous detail, the Lionel Hudson combines scale model accuracy with mass production performance and economy. In 1990, Lionel re-issued the scale Hudson. Here the interior story is told-from blueprint stage to the zinc alloy casting to the final test run. Then we examine all the Hudsons; including the scale models, rare gray 763 with gray coal pile tender, the fabulous 1930's OO gauge models, postwar 773, C&O streamliner from the 90's, 2000 gold-plated Hudson, and prototypes that never went into production. Also included are interviews with Dick Kughn, Lionel designers, builders, collectors, and operators, plus all-new footage that includes Lionel Hudsons through 2005 and vintage ads from Lionel's Model Builder magazine. If your going to own one Lionel engine, it should be one of there classic Hudsons. 118 minutes in color.
