Hi Jeff - Thanks for the tip on these Piko tires. Funny, when I sent the email to Carrie, the parts person at OnlyTrains.com, she told me they had no traction tires available for the Hudson. Anyway, do you know what the mm diameter size is of these Piko tires?Hi Tom - I ran into the same dilemma a few years ago with my LGB/Aster 20542 Hudson. I was about to have some custom made from a rubber seal company (not cheap!), but then somebody pointed me in the direction of these Piko BR64 traction tires, and I can verify that they DO fit. They are available from Only Trains or Upland Trains.
Here's another fun fact about the Hudson (at least mine anyway). My flickering firebox stopped working and I was dreading having to pull it apart to fix it. I just happened to replace the 5v smoke generator (which wasn't working) and BAM the flickering firebox started working too!!
