We it has finally happened, one of the most dedicated overseas manufactures Rapido Trains, has announced a Budd RDC-1, in HO. I had the pleasure of checking out Dave's Canadian passenger train, observation coach, the detail was amazing! it even had the glass frosting on the interior glass panels.
It looks like they will be offering the phase I RDC-1, which Commonwealth Railways Purchased and classed CB. the Rapido Trains model will have two motors under the floor so you can see right through the windows, and available with sound, and you guessed it, un numbered, un lettered.
I will be reserving two of theses, and happy to wait for a next level model, full interior, lighting, sound DCC all on a sesame seed bun!
Check out the link.
I think this is closest to the AN CB class, RDC-1 Phase 1b.
Some other pictures CB
looks like there should still be some interesting mods, sweet!
Iron triangle here we come!
