Rapido LRC Model behind a Canada 150 F40PH
Rapido Trains Inc. is excited to announce a new production of the VIA Bombardier LRC cars in HO scale. Rapido is working to restore the original tooling to meet our modern standards and produce at least one more run of these highly sought-after cars. In addition, we're producing the new Business Class cars, as well as several new paint schemes never offered before.
Since 1982, the Bombardier LRC (Light, Rapid, Comfortable) has dominated VIA Rail Canada services in the Ontario-Quebec Corridor. In the early 2000s, VIA announced a major rebuilding project that will extend the lives of the fleet by another 20 years. It is expected that with the recent announcement of new equipment for the corridor, most of the LRC fleet will be retired by 2025.
