Rapido December newsletter "not yet announced" announcement...

I sort of figured that everyone would be all over this already given how people like to make guesses, but hadn't seen anything yet. On 12/25 Rapido released their December newsletter via email and while it was mostly HO (CN & CP 4-6-0's) they mentioned that four new N products were in the works all to be announced in 2019. All of these share one commonality in that none have ever been produced in N scale before (I guess I'll get my Baldwin road-switcher hopes up again). They also enclosed a couple of teaser "obscure" closeups of part of 3D drawings,one of which looks like a underfloor/frame mechanicals and the other is some of grill/grid. I took a screenshot and attached it here since the newsletter is not available on their website yet.



Let the new year speculations begin  :D

The lower one looks like the car body filters on the "babyface" Baldwin DS6-4-20.   One of the few double cab locos would be right up their alley. :D

Don't they still owe us for at least one unannounced 2018 announcement that was pre-announced last summer?

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.

All manufacturers should pre-announce their pre-announcement of an announcement that they will announce when they announce it.

I'd like to see the non-grain cylindrical hoppers they did in HO....

Don't forget to add cancelations of the previously announced pre-announcements, probably due to insufficient announcements. :lol:

Due to the pre-announcement of a coming announcement, I pre-ordered 2 announcements, 1 for an N scale CN diner and the other for a U3
4-8-4.

Too wit - this simply must be added:

Those responsible have been sacked. Mynd you, møøse bites Kan be pretty nasti... 'We apologise again for the fault in the subtitles. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked.

In all seriousness, someone saw the top image and knew what it was immediately. I think he worked for the railroad in question.

Nobody at Rapido HQ - except for me - knew what it was.
