Rapido Osgood Bradley's in N scale

I just ran across this and checked the Springfield show thread - maybe I missed it but I didn't see it in there - Rapido has confirmed the Osgood Bradley coaches in N scale.... from the Rapido Blog dates feb 27th, 2013

We also announced that the Osgood Bradley cars WILL be done in N scale, answering the requests of many N scale modelers, although we do not have a time-frame yet. The design work is done, but we need to find a tooling and production slot to fit them into.

I'll speak with my friends at Rapido and Credit Valley and see if they have an update later this month for those of you who are waiting for these....

If this is a repeat of a posting - sorry.....
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Yes, I've been aware of this since the Springfield show and I do seem to recall that this was mentioned in one of the threads related to the show. Still, this is a great news!

 :|               Rapido,Announced that they were going to to these (Bradley) coaches in N shortly after the first release in HO. However where is the Turbo Train we have been promissed after it's success in HO. Where are the 10-5 sleepers and Dinette (Cafe?) cars . I know there were enough pre-orders for these. Much as I like Rapido's product I will believe it when I see it on the OGB coaches. Nate Goodman (Nato). Atleast they are not P.R.R. M1a Steam Locos.

They will be on the market sometime in 2014, most likely third quarter.

2015 for the Canadian ... plenty of time to save up!

Based on the HO version, you may need that much time. ;)

Old thread but new interest for me. What would you pull these with? Steam still ruled on the NH when these came out in 42. There are some early diesels that would work but if you want a steam consist what would you look for?

They actually appeared in 1934, and ran up to the formation of Amtrak.  The I-1 through I-4 Pacifics and the I-5 Hudson would have been the steam that pulled them.  The Rapido model will be the 10-window intercity coach, and the prototype ruled the Main Line and Shore Line for the most part until the fluted stainless steel 8600s arrived in 1947.

Once I get my hands on them, I will pull them behind Lehigh Valley PA's.
