Following the success of our Superior Stainless Budd Mid-Train Dome, it is our pleasure to announce the HO scale Superior Stainless Budd Baggage-Dorm! Pullman-Standard may have been America’s largest railroad car manufacturer, but Budd was without a doubt the most stylish. And Rapido’s new Baggage-Dorm reflects that style.
Baggage Dormitory cars were used on many trains throughout North America, providing baggage/express service along with sleeping quarters for the on-board service crew. In later years, many of these cars lost their bunks and were converted to full baggage cars. Our model is based on the Canadian Pacific prototype built by Budd in 1954/55. Many railroads operated similar cars.
Like our RDC, our Superior Stainless Budd passenger cars are without a doubt the most detailed Budd passenger car models ever produced! We're also producing the Budd Manor Sleeper as well - feel free to read about them at their own page.
The Manor Sleeper and the Baggage-Dorm will be produced together, and we will announce the preorder deadline when we are ready to start production, but we anticipate it will be in the next few months. Don’t delay! Please get your order in ASAP.
Order direct or through your favourite dealer.
