Rapido announces two new n scale passenger cars for 2011

Jason sent out his newsletter today and in it he says two new cars are coming for n scale this years (2011) he gave pictorial hints; clearly a CN model dining car and what looks like a club galley or club lounge are on the way. If you get Rapido telegraph 28 you will see the "hints"..... two new passenger cars - nice Christmas present.....

You're the passenger guru, Pud, so I'll take you word for what they are. Still waiting for the legrest in VIA and CN Noodle, but one thing is for certain, if they do anything in those two scheme, some will find their way to me!
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Pud,
I know  that they will be at the Big E train show (Amherst Railway Society) the end of January and
hope they will have a little more info then about this. This just means one more thing to look forward
too at the show.  :D

Wait, it wouldn't be the double diner, where one car is the kitchen and one is where the tables are.  Those are ex B&O/ex C&O cars!

I will be happy t o. Get more cars to go with my CN coaches and sleepers for Grand Trunk service. What I really look forward to is the day that the Osgood Bradley coaches make it to N scale in BAR and B&M.

Naw, I'm not that lucky.

We should know more at Springfield.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

Now let me be the spoiler...

2, 3 and 4 shown in the Newsletter is the cafe - bar - lounge while 1 and 5 are of the 10 Roomette - 5 double bedroom.

Both really nice cars.  Looking forward to seeing them in N.

(How'd I know?  I looked at their website.)

You think that's a 10-5...? really...? Ok; I'd defer to your knowledge anyday but I'd not have guessed that Jerry.....I guess that "bump" at the end kinda gave it away...

"I guess that "bump" at the end kinda gave it away..."

No, I suspected the sleeper was a 10 -5 because of the isle windows and the roomette windows and the cafe - bar - lounge looked too familiar.  Like I mentioned to Jason in an email last night it was in part my knowledge of passenger cars and looking at what they had done in HO.  Reviewing what they were offering made it easy to find shots of the interiors and exteriors which made it considerably easier to figure out what was what.  After all, they will first do their items in HO and as they are able to do they will then do them in N.

True; I'm surprised at the 10-5 as there are other models of 10-5/10-6 sleepers out there but I'll take them; no question about that.....

       Any new passenger cars in N Scale are always welcome news and from Rapido doubly so,with all that fantastic detail. Now I do hope we do get the Bradley coaches sometime down the road as well.                Nate Goodman (Nato).
