The FL-9 locomotives were purchased by the New Haven RR so that they didn't have to change locomotives when entering the NYC tunnels. The New York Central changed from electric to diesel at Croton- Harmon.

The Hudson line freights ran diesels in the city. A WPA project enlarged a park to go over the tracks - now called Riverside Park. There were ventilation gratings all up and down the upper levels of the park.

The Pennsy went  electric all the way to Harrisburg. I think the NH may have had locomotive facilities in Bridgeport.

Even today the Long Island has dual electric/diesel locomotives running on its non electrified lines.

By the way, speaking of NYC law about steam engines, did you know that the first law requiring a bell on a locomotive was passed in Long Island?

Now why would somebody make up a video to honor the NYC and fill it with modern stuff from long after the giant fell?

Probably to show the outcome of the great NYC empire.  Undecided I think I would be much better with NYC pictures...

All of Walthers name train so far are diesel powered. Hopefully they will match it with a P2K steam locomotive....someday!

So far no P2K steam locomotive normally pulled a passenger train.

There were only a few steam engines released in the Heritage line so far.

Makes one realize how many steam engines have been released by BLI and Bachmann Spectrum in comparison.

I am sure if there appears to be a market(profit) that an appropriate Heritage steamer will eventually make its way into the market. And of course the appropriate passenger cars as well.

Like B&M 2-6-0's!  Cheesy
Heritage steam seems to similar... I can't put my finger on it but the 2-8-4's, 2-8-8-2's, and 0-8-0's all have a very similar look to them...

There have been some brass NYC Hudsons made in the past with the Scullin disks.  Keep your eyes open at train shows--you might find one at a price not too far from today's Bachmann/BLI/P2K models.  IIRC, Rivarossi did the streamlined Hudson, but like most all of the older models the drivers were undersized and they didn't run very well.

Perhaps Bachmann in their Spectrum line will release a Hudson steam engine. 

I know that Rivarossi was supposed to re-release the Hudson this year - according to their web site. If the did they were few and far, just like their re-released 60' coach sets.

Bachmann certainly seems to be the leader in new steamers, second only to MTH. But then again you can not compare the two.

A Hudson?  Which one?  NYC?  C&O?  Milwaukee Road Baltic?  Santa Fe? 
Concor has a nice generic.
