The prototype of Aster/LGB’s Hudson #5405 operated over the mainlines of the New York Central for nearly 30 years. It’s most noteworthy accomplishment, after being equipped with a larger tender, was hauling the Twentieth Century Limited passenger train, and other first class trains, between Harmon, NY (32 miles north of New York City) and Chicago, a distance of 928 miles (1493 km), without engine change! Equally remarkable was the Century’s schedule behind a Super Hudson: 16 hours - more than 2 hours faster than the current Amtrak Schedule with diesel power. It pulled a train of 3.6 million pounds at 60 mph.
