Got my new to me 326 Hudson. Completely happy with it. Excellent condition.
Original paint and may be as nice as any of my steamers. flyernut was correct.
Rear step of tender is bent outward a bit. Has not been repaired and will leave as is.
Afraid to break it and does not bother me a bit. Does not look bad. In a few minutes I will add pics to "what have you added to roster" thread. Nice to not be disappointed in a new purchase. I have not run it yet. I think sometimes I just enjoy having these beauties as much as running them.

No problem with the 302. I told you I was in no hurry. Get your other stuff done.

Think that was the 3rd listing for that engine. I looked at that engine as well and almost bid on it the second time he listed it. Sounds like it went to a good home. Enjoy!

It was a little high. Maybe 20 to 30.00 too high, but I wanted a nice one. I was not disappointed when I unboxed it. The cab numbers and the paint is fantastic, Have not even ran it yet but I am sure that will be fine also.

I think you got a great deal. And it looks great! I've come to better appreciate these steamers since I started my own 312 rebuild. The good pullmore wheels and original paint and working whistle (even if you don't use it) and working smoke really start to add up. And paying up a little for originality and good functionality is worth it, I think.
