Have all engines from first CC and they all run great! Really like the Hudson and have no complaints. I believe it was the first engine I acquired that has the infra red drawbar. Do have others but acquired them after getting the CC engines. And, like the CCII engines, as well. Haven't ever run the gold 1900 Hudson.... yet... Yes, hard to believe it has been twenty years! So many engines, so many track miles.. so little time!
