  • MR-20b and MR-20c classes available in the first run

  • Rapido’s innovative dead straight metal side handrails with plastic stanchions

  • Incredible underframe detail including traction motor cables and other piping, rerailer and a silly number of separately applied parts

  • Separate grab irons and handrails installed at the factory

  • Operating headlights, rear lights, tri-colour class lights, and illuminated cab control stand

  • Highly detailed cab interior with optional open front door

And some new features!
