Part of the second batch of Hudsons delivered, Canadian Pacific H1b #2816 became a celebrity when it was restored back to operation by CP in 2001. #2816 is the only surviving member of the H1a or H1b classes, having originally been preserved at Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton PA before being purchased and restored by CP in 1998.
During its post-restoration career #2816 gained the nickname the “Empress” as it hauled excursions across Canada and into the US. It even became a film star, garnering a leading roll in the spectacular IMAX film “Rocky Mountain Express” in 2011.
Developed with the help and guidance of CP’s steam restoration team, Rapido’s HO scale model of #2816 will include the correct oil tender, working ditch lights, and the additional details added to the loco for its excursion working. The loco will be sold in a high-quality custom wood display box. It will be a fantastic addition to any collection!
