Model Information: This model was first launched in 2001. E-R Models of New Jersey contracted with Bachmann/Kader to produce this engine in both N and HO. Like all Bachmann products, these models were made in China. It uses a 5-pole skew-wound motor. The couplers are truck-mounted Rapidos. These are not easy to fit with Micro-Trains, so despite the fact that they run well, they will be a headache to use with modern rolling stock unless you use a gender-bender buffer car (Rapido couplers on one end and MTL on the other).
DCC Information: The model is DCC-Ready, but the only known manufacturer of a decoder for it is Digitrax, and they discontinued production of the decoder that fits this model.
Road Name History:
The name itself originates from the 1823 New York state corporation charter listing the unusual name of "The President, Managers and Company of the Delaware & Hudson Canal Co." authorizing an establishment of "water communication" between the Delaware River and the Hudson River.
Nicknamed "The Bridge Line to New England and Canada," the D&H helped connect New York with Montreal, Quebec and New England. It called itself "North America's oldest continually operated transportation company." Between 1968 & 1984, the D&H was owned by Norfolk & Western. N&W sold it to Guilford Transportation, who cast it into bankruptcy in 1988 and in 1991, the D&H was purchased by Canadian Pacific Railway (CP).
On September 19, 2015, Norfolk Southern Railway assumed control and began operations of their recently acquired Delaware & Hudson "South Line", the 282 miles from Schenectady, New York to Sunbury, Pennsylvania from CP. The Delaware & Hudson "South Line" is a rail route that now consists of three rail lines, the Sunbury Line, the Freight Line, and the Voorhesville Running Track; the Sunbury Line absorbed the original route of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad main line which contains the Nicholson Cutoff during that rail line's history.
