RAPIDO TRAINS: Super Continental Passenger Cars




To celebrate their 20th year in the industry, Rapido Trains has announced a new run of the first ready-to-run models they ever made, the HO Scale Super Continental Line Passenger Cars! These include the: Lightweight Coach, 8-4-4 Duplex Sleeper (4-8-4 for the Canadians) and the 10-5 Sleeper. When they were first released, these cars broke the mold for HO scale passenger car detail.


But there is always room for refinements and this new run is no exception. Here is a list of upgrades:

  • Track-powered interior lighting with capacitor controlled by our (often imitated, never duplicated) Rapido Lighter

  • Improved design and assembly to prevent warping

  • Tighter connections between the body and the roof

  • New couplers designed for more reliable operation when pulled or pushed

  • Redesigned, free-rolling trucks


All of this is in addition to the incredible underbody detail, multi-color interior, skirts or stairs (as appropriate) and extremely fine painting and decoration, down to the end door car names and numbers!
