Rapido Trains Inc. is a high-end manufacturer of model trains and accessories in HO, OO and N (North American 1:160 and British 1:148) scales. Our aim is to recreate the entire rail travel experience, from fully-detailed interiors and underframe equipment on our trains to fully-wired telephone poles for your model railroad.
The name RAPIDO was introduced by Canadian National in 1965 to headline the railway’s high-speed intercity passenger services. Until the mid-1980s, RAPIDO stood for fast schedules, frequent trains, and superb service. Today, we continue the RAPIDO idea with our state-of-the-art models and attention to detail. Like CN’s RAPIDO, we aim to provide the highest quality and value. We are not related to Arnold Rapido, the European line of N-scale trains from the 1960s and 1970s.
