The Commodore Vanderbilt Hudson locomotive was named for the NYC’s early leader Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. It is a creation of Carl F. Kantola, a NYC career man of 47 years. The No. 5344 Hudson was the prototype and it was modified to accept the iconic streamlined shrouding which was designed by the Case Institute of Technology. On December 27, 1934, the Commodore Vanderbilt debuted at Grand Central Station and kicked off an exhibition tour of major NYC route cities. It then was placed in service hauling the 20th Century Limited.

Broadway Limited is pleased to bring to HO the most accurate and desirable Commodore Vanderbilt Hudson ever.
