      Wanted: USA Trains J1e Hudson

      Hello all! New guy here. I am looking for a USA Trains J1e Hudson in excellent running condition to add to my growing fleet of 3 other engines (Aristo-craft 'Lil Critter and 2 USA Trains UP GP-9s). I prefer the NYC road #5343 (the one with the silver / grayish front) but would seriously consider any road name / number. Smoke & Phoenix sound preferred.

      If no forum member has one to sell I would appreciate any tips elsewhere. Have started to look at eBay and at least one large scale Facebook page.

      Looks like an excellent forum and I'm glad to be here.

       

      Thanks in advance!

      The best resource for buying and selling lately seems to be the G Scale Swap and Shop group on Facebook.   Well, and eBay.

      There's probably a technical way, but I open a second tab and grab the quotes to paste in my post.

      Good luck in your search.

      @ Rooster - My vision: would like to have both steam and diesel powered engines...steam would be a 0-4-0 switcher that could haul 5 or 6 coal cars or some logging cars and a USAT J1e Hudson to haul a much longer freight train of box cars and coal and/or ore cars; at least 20 cars to make it look good.  I am aware that most Hudsons were passenger trains but they did haul some freight and freight is where my heart is.  I like the variety of the kind of cars you get in freight and the grittiness/manliness of being a "working" train.  The more modern portion of the railroad would be the diesels: a small switch engine, 2 UP GP-9s, 2 UP SD-45s and maybe a UP or Rio Grande SD-70 or two.  (Can you tell I grew up near a UP line?......UP was towards the mountains to the east and the Rio Grande was towards the lake to the west, both separated by only about a half mile.)  I don't have a layout yet but I have to have at least a couple bridges to cross some ravines and hopefully some running water somewhere.  A few industrial structures is a must, too.  I go more for realistic than overly whimsical in terms of overall style.

      I've already bought the diesel switcher and the 2 UP GP-9s and am on the hunt for the USAT Hudson.  My thought is buy the locos / engines now and then I can have fun adding cars to my collection until it's time to build the RR.    

       

      @ Dan Hilyer - Thx for the welcome!

      As you plan your layout, keep your curves to a minimum 10 foot diameter since you are anticipating long locos.... bigger would be better.

      A great running American diesel is the LGB Davenport and was made in 2 and 3 axle versions.   I also liked the USA trains 20 tonner which is no longer being made.Davenport had plenty of room for decoder/sound boards and I modified the grill for installing a 2 inch speaker.

      Dan, in the "Reply" box, at the right hand side of the menu bar are a pair of quotes, and if you hover they describe themselves as "toggle blockquote".   So copy the text you want and paste it after you toggle the paragraph.

      am on the hunt for the USAT Hudson

      Best of luck.  I ran my new K4 a couple of weeks ago - maybe time to get the AML Hudson out . . .
