CP Rail Angus Vans Are Back
It's back . . . the CP Rail Angus Van from Rapido Trains, that is. The first run sold out quickly, and the company gets daily requests for more. The most requested are the CP Rail and CSX versions.
Because of the number of requests that they are getting, Rapido has decided to produce another run of both the CP and CSX vans ("cabooses" in the U.S.) in 12 new numbers, plus unnumbered.
(Even though the Manitoba & Minnesota Sub. is set in the mid-1990s, after vans had disappeared, I had to have a couple of these extraordinary models. They run on a couple of locals, or just whenever I feel like it. You can see one traversing the layout by clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSFzMPsLiv4)
If you wanted one the first time around, but missed out, you can get one (or more) now by visiting the Rapido Trains web site at http://www.rapidotrains.com/cab1.html
