Designed by Chief of Motive Power & Rolling Stock Henry Blane Bowen, Canadian Pacific’s H-1a and H-1 b class 4-6-4 Hudson locos were state-of-the-art steam power when delivered. A total of twenty locos were delivered in two batches of ten each. The first batch, numbers #2800-2809, were delivered in 1929 and classified H1a. The second ten, numbers #2810-2819, were delivered in 1930 and were classified H1b. These locomotives were used on mainline passenger trains across the CP’s system. So success full were they that CP used their design as the basis for its later H c/d/e “Royal Hudsons” seven years later. Both classes survived intact until the end of steam, with the first retirements not coming until 1957.

 

Rapido’s H1a/b HO scale models are based on our hugely successful Royal Hudson. We are offering several different detail variations which allow you to model these locos at any point throughout their service life, including the preserved #2816.
