The Boston to New York City run was one of the most popular, and profitable, routes in the entire US and featured flagship service with the NYNH&H. To keep up with the speed and performance of it's competitors the NYNH&H introduced a new series of thoroughbreds, the I-5 Class Hudsons. The New Haven I-5 class were 4-6-4 streamlined Hudson steam locomotives built for high-speed passenger service. Ten of these locomotives were built by Baldwin in 1937 for the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad, which referred to the locomotives as the Shore Line type. The I-5s pulled the railroad's premier trains "The Yankee Clipper" and the "Merchants Limited" beginning in 1938 and continued to do so until 1950, well into the diesel age. These were the last steam locomotives to be purchased by the railroad.
