Full interior with lighting included for US $49.95 seems like a bargain considering the costs of other things these days…

Look pretty sweet.  Bring on the complaints

No complaints will probably order some. Take note they say battery powered lighting. Maybe this will help with smooth rolling wheels.

CP and TH&B for me. Maybe an ONR but probably not. Lots of foobs, that's interesting.

And coming with interior lighting... hope they don't catch fire like the LRC cars.

Now that KCS is about to become a fallen flag, those white unlettered versions are mighty tempting to foobie.

The CSX Safety is pretty funny considering recent events. I’ll still get one, it’s a gorgeous scheme.

Big whiff there.

I knew there was a prototype, for the TTX caboose, but the Rapido model is closer to the prototype than I thought.. The last release of this scheme I remember was the Con-Cor Wide vision caboose.   :facepalm:

Hopefully they don't screw up the coupler height like they did with the Charles Point vans they did.  That still chafes me.

It's interesting that the website shows road numbers for the CP Rail vans as:

434337, 434419, 434515, 434574, 434590, 434703.

While the flyer says:

434515, 434574, 434628, 434649, 434662, 434703.

I'm in for as many CP as I can afford, and probably one or two Algoma Central. Only question is what to do with the Athabasca and Sylvan kits I have 😅

Good news thank you @rapidotrains

Yep, I'll be adding one as well to help the N scale cause.

 Painted unlettered! Great for a freelanced short line or regional. Maybe they will offer some painted unlettered rebuilt Alcos and geeps if they do those in N scale. These really look amazing.
