Lionel 700E J-1E Hudson Steam Locomotive - Lionel 100th Anniversary - Commemorative special edition celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Lionel - Die-cast metal with a 22 K. Gold Flash finish - Unofficial Series - QXI5261
The Legendary Lionel 700E Hudson - Selected by Lionel as the centerpiece of its Centennial celebration, the first Hudson 700E was introduced in 1937. A marvel of its time, the 700E was a highly detailed die-cast replica in perfect O scale.
The New York Central’s J-Class 4-6-4 Hudson, with its classic steam locomotive styling, was an ideal choice for the landmark Lionel model. It is said to have been the favorite of Lionel founder Joshua Cowen. It was certainly the pride of the NC fleet, pulling both passenger cars and freight along its namesake river.
This dated, commemorative Keepsake Ornament is formed of die-cast metal. The combination of finishes, including the 22 K. Gold Flash, echo the markings of the 700E J-1E Hudson Steam Locomotive being issued by Lionel in an elaborate centennial set.
