HO Scale Electric Locomotives

General Modelling Tips and Tricks

Important DC Advisory

Do NOT use cheaper "train-set"-type controllers with any of your Rapido locomotives. Several models of controller are notorious for voltage spikes and they WILL destroy your locomotive. There is no “if” about it. We will try to help you if we have the parts, but we are not responsible for locomotive damage due to voltage spikes in your power supply. As well, we will not repair any Rapido locomotive damaged by any "train-set"-type DC controller unless you have retired the controller. Otherwise the damage will likely reoccur. “Train-set”-type DC controllers should not be used with any modern model locomotives.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

We will do our best to solve any problems or issues that you may have with your locomotives, passenger cars and freight cars. Our N Scale and HO scale models contain hundreds of parts and are completely hand assembled. If your Rapido model has any defects that originate from the factory, we will repair it using new components or replace it outright should a repair not be possible. However, we can only replace your model while we have additional ones in stock. We normally keep spares for up to six months after a model is released.

What should I do if there is a problem?

Please contact us (call, email or fax) with the full details of the problem with your product before returning the model. Please note that we do not generally re-install parts that have come loose in transit. These can easily be re-attached with a drop of glue.
