Let There be HEAT!

I work on Edmundston all winter long, and it gets pretty cold on the shore of Lake Ontario. I was able to get a furnace blower from Brendan Frisina when he put a new furnace in his house, so I put this in the duct work of Edmundston. We have air flow once again in Edmundston in a long time. The heat generated at the A end of the car will now be distributed through the car's duct work .... works amazing.

COVID 19 UPDATE - January 12th

Most Rapido employees are still working from home, although we do have very limited staff in our offices and warehouse.

While our service department and warehouse are once again open to receive your models for repair under warranty, we are not able to deal with walk-in traffic. Please contact us for authorization for your repair and ensure that any model you send to us is accompanied by the completed form provided. We are able to take care of curbside pick-ups and drop-offs by appointment only.

You can still order pre-order products as normal. Our factories are working and new product deliveries are ongoing.
