Year Catalog No. Description
1958 30440 N.Y Central Hudson Freight (Whistle)
Remarks Some have doubted that this set exists, but the photos below should settle that issue.  It is, however, a very hard to find set.  Pictured below are two different sets, both of which came with the 446 locomotive.  One very unique feature of this set is the unusual packaging that contained the whistle control components.
