Is this an engine from a Con-Cor passenger set?  Looks pretty good - cannot see the trailing truck - Lehigh Valley did not operate any Hudsons.

 Con Cor did make a John Wilkes passenger set with a Streamlined Hudson,but that one looks to be HO as SP-Wolf says..

I thought so - it is in the N Scale listings, and that is why I asked.

Unless it is brass (not Con-Cor), this is H0 scale.  It is much too well detailed to be anything Con-Cor ever offered in N scale.

Gorgeous but HO. Rivarossi never made the scalloped drivers in N, and the handrails are too thin to be N ;)
