Does anyone here own the Lionel OO scale NYC Hudson from the 1940s?

No, though one of my Doyle books has a section on Lionel OO. What info are you looking for?

Doyle says that Lionel offered 4 versions of the 4-6-4 Hudson: high trim or low trim (piping, valve gear, etc.) in each of 3-rail or 2-rail power options. Production ran 1938 through 1942.

Ohh ... and T-Man ... I saw LOTS of OMG price tables! (Though I guess tinplate man on the corner with his $450 238 was king of the hill!)

"had" ... where'd it go?

Side note ...

I picked up a used Lionel history "All Aboard" book the other day at the Greenberg's show ... a bit wrinkled, but for $5 I was happy. Until I got home and started reading a bit of it ... pages 113 to 144 are printed and bound TWICE, and the book has no pages 81 through 112. Somebody was "out to lunch" at the print shop that day.

I sold my Doyle books when I decided to get out of pre/postwar for like the fifth time, LOL... I really do not hold onto anything if I feel I have no need for it...

I don't have the guts to do stuff like that. More of a pack rat type on my end. 'Cause ya' never know when you're gonna need that thingamajig that's packed away way back deep in the corner of the basement!

I model in OO british outline, but I am interested in doing US/Canada outline steam locos. Unfortunately, there is no OO North American stuff to my knowledge, except for the really old models that are more of collectors' items than anything else. I think I will have to build a second layout for North American HO. I don't like the strange magnified look of my luvly British outline locos next to the HO North American stuff. Its a shame, but that is the way it is. Its surprising how much of a difference such a small change in scale makes, even if they do run on the same track!
