The J-Class 4-8-4 Hudson was not designed to pull freight, but passengers, and at a high speed. The ?Js? were the pride of the Norfolk & Western, pulling passenger trains such as The Powhatan Arrow, Pocahontas, and Cavalier. While on test on the Pennsylvania Railroad, locomotive 610 proved that a J could pull ten cars at 110 mph along a section of flat, straight track. Despite the power and speed capabilities the Js were among the most reliable engines, running as many as 15,000 miles per month, even on the mountainous and relatively short route of the Norfolk & Western. Now you can have a J of your own with Williams 4-8-4 J-Class Semi Scale Steam Locomotive.
