Item Details


Description: RK Imperial Among the most famous of all the Hudsons, Canadian Pacific’s Royal Hudsons also had the distinction of sporting the British royal arms and a crown. After King George VI and his entourage toured the country in a royal train powered by a Hudson, CPR added the crown to all 45 of the Hudsons built between 1937 and 1945. Of course, it was not only the royal visit that distinguished the Royal Hudsons. They worked so efficiently that they reduced the number of engine changes needed to cross Canada from fourteen to nine. And for a time, the ”Royal York” train between Toronto and Montreal, headed by a Hudson, held the world record for the fastest scheduled train, covering 124 miles in 108 minutes. The last of Canadian Pacific’s Royal Hudsons was not retired from regular service until 1960, and a few survivors, including No. 2860, are still popular for tourist excursions.
