Rapido’s True North Locomotives FP9A and F9B are a team effort and a labour of love from a bunch of detail fanatics. We did not compromise on our GMD (General Motors Diesel Division, London, Ontario) “F” units. Before the Rapido FP9A arrived on the market, your only options for an accurate FP9A were brass or a major kitbash. Our FP9A is 100% accurate for CN and CP – we tooled all-new shells and underbodies for each company!

The Canadian Pacific F9B!

Due to the huge number of requests we have received from customers who bought “The Canadian” complete train, we are delighted to announce the Canadian Pacific F9B locomotive! The CP F9B is available as a powered DC and DC/DCC/Sound model for the first time ever!

HO scale F9B - CP details

CP F9B in CP Action Red

Our Canadian Pacific GMD F9B was designed from the ground up as a Canadian Pacific GMD F9B. That means it has a unique body style with three portholes per side and 48″ dynamic brake cooling fans, CP winterization hatches, CP grills, CP cooling coils, CP end details, CP steam genny details, and of course CP’s unique skirting beside the steps that no other F9B model has.

Our F9Bs feature unmatched levels of detail that border on the insane, such as all-separate piping under the frame, hanging rerailers with chains holding them in place, and fuel and water tank vents sticking up out of the roof – a first in HO scale F-unit models! The body sides feature our unique “No-Warp Grills.” Each grill is a C-channel pressed into the shell that won’t warp no matter what humidity and temperature changes it is subjected to.

The True North GMD F9B features:

  • Motor and gears designed for smooth slow-speed operation. Click here for more info
  • Road-number and era-specific details applied at the factory
  • Correct fuel tank, end door, and other unit-specific details
  • See-through fans
  • Separate underbody air piping and details
  • Metal Macdonald-Cartier Knuckle Couplers mounted at correct height
  • Operational headlight and user-applied operational ditch lights
  • Operational class lights and backup light (DCC)
  • Available in both DC/Silent and DC/DCC/ Sound
  • Several road numbers plus unnumbered available
  • Decals with alternative locomotive numbers provided
  • Correct Colours
  • 100% accurate for the Canadian Pacific F9B.

Due to fatigue in our F9B moulds we have to retire this model. Sorry!
