The 2065 steamer was classified by Lionel as a Santa Fe-style Hudson. It's a mid-size steam engine and sold as an 027 gauge item. The 2065 remains a dependable and quality locomotive. With the exception of the cab number, the 2065 has the same boiler as the 685 and 2055 steam locomotives with the only difference being the boiler fronts. On the 2065, the boiler front has an external feedwater heater tank above the headlight -- a nice add-on detail preferred by many operators.

The 2065 steam engine was available in boxed sets or as a separate sale item. It is a common locomotive and was sold with either of two whistling tenders; the 2046W streamlined style or 6026W square or coffin style.

Standard features include; 4-6-4 wheel arrangement with detailed driving wheel hardware, Magnetraction, three-position E-unit, headlight, smoke, wire handrails plus an ornamental bell and whistle. The trailing truck was always produced with plastic side frames.

Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
The length of the 2065 is approximately 11 1/4" long (front to back). Since the 2065 was available with different tenders, its overall length depends upon the specific tender provided with this small Hudson.

Only Known Variation - The 2065 did not undergo any changes during its production run. Although found with with the 2046W or 6026W whistling tenders, neither is considered difficult to locate.
