I swear im not trying to hijack this thread but that NYC pdf you recommended Ed was absolutely GOLDEN! Other readers should find it fascinating aswell. Please read!

 

Thank You Ed!

PM Railfan
Which was yours?

I grew up only a mile from the NYC's main line through Cleveland and not far from Collinwood shops so I was enamored with anything NYC from an early age. As soon as I learned of the prestige and luxury of the Century I became an instant convert of anything Henry Dreyfuss. While the Empire State Express fluted stainless looked great I still have more admiration for the gray Hudsons assigned to the Century.

I believe many people mistake the Mercury and James Whitcomb Riley K5-bs for the Commodore Vanderbilt Hudson which, to my eye, is just a bit classier than the usual 'upside-down bathtub' moniker those other streamlined engines earned.

Read about them here:

https://nycshs.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/pages-from-1981q3.pdf

This article was written by Carl Kantola the fellow that was responsible for applying the case-designs to the 5344.

This is the Rivarossi NYC Hudson I bought at Woolworths the day after Christmas, 1970 or so.

More Hudsons, please.

(Ed - Sadly enough the only three Hudson's I own are packed away. One is C&O ofcourse, the other is that gorgeous looking ESE(!), 3rd being your standard issue NYC Hudson. After all these years, don't know how I never owned the 20th C. version. It's on the 'official' list of things to buy (that dont require permission first!) should I come across a nice one decently priced. The Vander B. version was a bit too English looking for me. IMO - the ESE version was the best looking of all the NYC streamliners. Which was yours?)

Please show me another Hudson.

Or three Whistling

 NYC_Commodore-3 by Edmund, on Flickr

The Commodore Vanderbilt streamlining was designed in Cleveland by Case Institute of Technology industrial design students. The engine, 5344, was a standard NYC J1-e Hudson which later (1939) wore the Dreyfuss-designed streamlining for a while before returning back to a standatd, unstreamlined engine.

More Hudson 4-6-4 types, please.

I cannot compete against such excellent modelling of water by all.

 

I hope no one really thinks of Show Me Something or Weekend Photo Fun as competitions. If so, let's just declare Peter the winner and retire both threads!

Wasn't there a neat looking Waterfalls one seems to remember, you added to this area?  Sure would like to see that again.

 
I'll fill in the blank, as Mike, (mbinsewi) may be a little bit humble when it comes to his set apart excellence in modeling, and hand-painted backdrops.
 
 
Dug this picture out of my railroad log.  His use of colour and modeling technique is something I've admired for years.
