Broadway Limited 1st vs 2nd run HO NYC J1e Hudsons/another NYC Group reply

My recollection is that there were two main electrical/control differences between the first two runs of BLI Hudsons:

  • The tender electrical pickups in the first run were not reliable, so that was redesigned for the second run.  (I think the first run used springs around the truck screws.)
  • The original run had a decoder feature (matching scale speed to specific speed steps) that MTH charged violated a patent, so that feature was removed in the second run.
