NYC LEGACY J3A 4-6-4 #5418


The best of the best! The J3a represented the ultimate development of the Hudson type - a locomotive synonymous with the New York Central. Introduced in 1937, the J3 held prime passenger assignments until the arrivals of the Niagara's nearly a decade later. Over two decades of service, the appearance of the class changed as well. This new release, the first in over 15 years by Lionel, includes several of those changes, matched to photos of each locomotive in a particular era.
