Jason Shron and Rapido Trains have done it again by introducing another new exciting model into the world of HO scale railroading. Our very own Tony Cook is here to bring you all the details in another edition of AML Product News.
Following the success of the French build turboliners in the mid-1970’s Amtrak turned to Rohr industries in California to build modernized turboliners for use along the Empire Corridor.
After nearly 20 years of service, Amtrak selected one of the RTL sets to be rebuilt incorporating several improvements and a striking new demonstrator paint scheme. All of the equipment was retired from active service by 2004 but Rapido Trains has brought them back to life using original blueprints and field measurements with full detailed interiors. Both powered cars come with reliable drive systems working headlights and of course the DCC models feature accurate sound remastered from original videos.
