Wow! 1,500 views? Thanks guys, that's a huge milestone for me. :D

Hey guys, Cap here. I thought my Royal Hudson needed an overhaul (on the locomotive AND the project...I'm really ashamed of how I typed out the info now...) so I did just that. Since I haven't updated it in like 5-6 months, new stuff came out since then, so I put them to use. The boiler is now the brighter white from quartz, which is supposed to represent silver but unfortunately that has yet to exist. Slightly updated the interior, and updated the left drive rod. And I also used the upper trapdoors instead of the older low trapdoors. Rest is in the update log. This was my first land project I've ever did, so yes it's a little outdated in build type but I don't plan on making another one anytime soon. Thanks for looking! And if you can give a diamond, that is appreciated, but I don't want to spam. Thanks! :D

Brief history of the Royal Hudson:

In 1939 King George VI, accompanied by his wife Queen Elizabeth, became the first reigning British monarch to visit Canada. For 31 days Their Majesties toured their Canadian Dominion from coast to coast in a 12-car train described by the Canadian Pacific as "regal in appearance, luxurious in interior decorations and appointments," and "in every way a home and a castle." The King, being something of a railroad buff, occasionally rode in the cab, and after one such cab ride the Queen was heard to remark, "That was a thrilling experience." The Canadian National used four different locomotives to handle the eastbound leg of the trip. The Canadian Pacific, however, handled its 3,224-mile westbound leg with a single locomotive, streamlined Hudson No. 2850, except for some assistance over mountain passes. In recognition of 2850's flawless performance, the Canadian Pacific was granted permission to designate its entire class of streamlined Hudsons as "Royal Hudsons," with the engines wearing the royal family crown on their running boards. If ever a locomotive was granted knighthood, this was it.

It has happened again. BTW, why would you have a dispenser in the cab? What does it serve as?
