In 1937, New Haven received ten 4-6-4 locomotives built by Baldwin. These were the last steam power the road would purchase and they were certainly the most beautiful. They featured streamlined boilers that were gloss black with stainless steel stripes and trim (aluminum paint on the tenders.) They were powered by large 80" Boxpox drivers that were ideal for the speedy Shoreline passenger trains that serviced New Haven and Boston. Many of these routes originated in, or continued to, New York via the New Haven's electrified western end. These locomotives hauled some of the most recognizable extra fare trains in railroading including the Merchants Limited, Senator and Yankee Clipper.

Broadway Limited is building the most accurate, smooth running, sound-equipped, HO New Haven I-5 Hudson ever.

Modeling Time Period for New Haven I-5 Hudson

Built by Baldwin and delivered in 1937, New Haven received a total of ten I-5 class steam locomotives. The I-5 earned an excellent reputation for outstanding performance and dependable service. However, with the introduction of DL109 diesel engines in 1941 and PA's 1948 and 1949, they all retired by early 1951.


New Haven's I-5 Hudsons were originally delivered with a block lettering scheme. Later, a small script scheme was introduced which was eventually replaced by a large script with a square lettering scheme. All three versions will be produced.
