Some of you may have ordered Lionel's J3a Hudson #5413. Described as having a 1946 appearance!

5413 Lionel

In May 1945, Locomotive #5413 was reported scrapped following this fatal wreck in Rochester, NY.

Not quite the 1946 appearance Lionel had in mind.

It was scrapped in 1945 eh? That’s Pretty remarkable since here is a photograph of her taken in July 1953 at Albany, NY.

That's great!!! I'm glad the report was wrong. Thanks!

Very Interesting. I found a document on the internet that states the 5413 did receive a PT tender (PT-4). The builder sometimes but not always put a tender plate on the PT tenders that would read T-XXXX but it is unknown if the tender assigned to 5413 had one of these tender plates. The document says that the 5413 was "damaged" on 05/02/45 and the PT tender was reassigned to 5333 on 09/46.  Under retired it has a question mark. You can read it here on page 19:

So what really happened to the 5413? Was she scrapped or rebuilt?

This would make for an incredible diorama on a layout if someone had a loco that didn't run, if it was done well. If I modelled a class I standard gauge railroad*, I'd for sure have modelled a scene just like this, with crowds standing around.

*The RR I model is a narrow gauge line which never put a loco on the ground like this...
