Rapido Icons of Canadian Steam

Rapido Icons of Canadian Steam

Icons of Canadian Steam

Power and elegance. Steam locomotives have captured the Canadian imagination for almost two centuries. They are the symbols of the golden age of Canadian railroading. They are the locomotives that moved the people and materials that built our nation. And they are still treasured, even though it has been over fifty years since they were retired from the Canadian mainline.

Canadian Pacific Royal Hudson

Rapido Trains Inc. is proud to introduce Icons of Canadian Steam. This HO scale collection is a daring program to produce twelve of the most important and famous steam locomotives in Canadian railway history.

The first Icon of Canadian Steam is the Canadian Pacific Royal Hudson, possibly the most famous Canadian steam locomotive of them all. Following its release in 2017, we will produce two steam locomotives a year for the next seven years. We are working with some of Canada’s most respected steam locomotive modellers to ensure that the Icons of Canadian Steam will be the jewels of your model railroad collection and will operate flawlessly.

Join us in celebration of Canada’s finest steam locomotives of the ages. Reserve your first Icon of Canadian Steam today.

Bill Schneider from Rapido Trains Inc. gives us a tour of the Canadian Pacific Royal Hudson at Exporail. This is the first Rapido steam locomotive in the Icons of Canadian Steam series.
