Overview

Header
  • The company is now selling a new line of airbrush-ready acrylic paints. The Proto-Paint line is colour-matched to real paint chips for the most accurate colours possible. "All our railway paints dry to a decal-ready gloss finish and our weathering shades dry to a flat finish. All our paint is manufactured for us right here in Canada. Our first release starts with a variety of 60 different US and Canadian and colours.....we will be adding more colours every month."
  • "We are excited to announce our second and third Prime Movers by Rapido releases, which are also our first modern intermodal models in HO scale. Just like the previously announced Dash 8-40CM locomotive, the new products feature a moderate detail specification and our acclaimed Wife-Approved Pricing™. The Gunderson 53′ single-unit double-stack well car was built at Trenton Works, Nova Scotia, between 2003-4 and is the latest iteration of the famous high-capacity Husky-Stack design. With every intermodal train including at least three or four cars of this type, it was arguably one of the biggest gaps in the range of well car models. This is accompanied by a newly tooled 53′ Hyundai high-cube container with riveted sheet/post sides and optional heater box/fuel tank."
  • "Following its well-received 52’6″ CN/CP Mill Gondola, Rapido Trains Inc. is proud to announce a new addition to its range of iconic Canuck freight cars in HO scale, the first accurate model of the 3800 cu.ft. cylindrical hopper car. For years Canadian modellers have had to put up with 4550 grain cars painted to represent these classic vehicles, but no more! Time to throw out your foobies! The prototype cars were designed for carrying bulk commodities like powdered minerals and industrial chemicals, including cement and potash. They are 100-ton capacity with four hopper compartments totaling 3800-3850 cubic feet and are fitted with either round or trough hatches. Examples were built by all three of the major car builders in Canada and they have traveled to every corner of Canada and the contiguous United States."
  • "Our Noise Killer foam roadbed is made from a dense, flexible foam product. It does not need to be cut down the centre to be formed into curves and can be applied straight from the box without cutting or filing. It is available in both branchline and mainline profiles and is recommended for application on hard and smooth surfaces, such as extruded foam insulation board."
  • Finally, the deadlines for the GE Dash 8-40CM and the Rebuilt VIA GMD F40PH-2D have both been extended to September 26.
