A GP40-2L would only work if we were doing a whole range of GMD 4-axle units. That's a large undertaking.

Or you toolnthe correct she’ll and sell them to Atlas as a joint venture. I need three or four for the various KCS versions.

So far the Dash 8 orders are good. It will be interesting to see which ends up selling more - the Dash 8 or the FL9.

-Jason

Well, that's not a no. I could pontificate and wag my finger on the virtues of you guys doing the GP40-2L as an eager James Hill once did regarding the St Paul & Pacific, but I suspect that'd be annoying for you.

I would just suck to have road specific GP38's and GP40's  :D
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

I love that there seems to be an Amtrak RTL Turboliner reference in all the recent N scale videos..

If that turns out to be an epic troll, I'll be very disappointed...   :scared:

Jordan has been pushing for the Turboliner since he started at Rapido. I honestly don't know if it would be profitable in N or HO. We'll have to do more research.

He directed that last video, and he was hugely involved in the TurboTrain video. Anything he's involved with has Turboliners all over it....  I wonder what he'll do if we ever make the darn thing.

One thing many of us in the industry have learned the hard way is that you can't rely on someone else's factory, nor can you rely on another company staying with the same management or ownership. So if you design something as a joint venture and someone's factory closes or the company is sold, you could find yourself with one half of a project missing.

We have another N scale project 99% designed and a third one about 75% designed. You won't be starved for Rapido N scale. Two of the next three projects to go into the mould shop are N scale.
