Three Peaks on the Horizon

Rapido Trains UK is delighted to announce that it’s filling one of the biggest gaps in the ranks of ‘N’ gauge diesels with an all new family of ‘Peaks’.
Rapido UK Sales & Marketing Manager Richard Foster said, “We’re going to offer all three classes of ‘Peak’ because they all effectively share the same bodyshell and bogies. But our first release will be the head of the family, the Class 44.“
“We only started work on this project a month or so ago and we’re delighted with how well it’s progressing. Although there’s still a bit of work to do, the CAD images and renders show great promise. We’d like to thank the Peak Locomotive Company for assisting us with this
exciting project.”
Rapido’s new models will feature a variety of detail differences (including plated over steps on the body side, removal of inner sandboxes and extra steps on the bogies). It will also boast a high quality specification including:
  • Directional Lighting
  • Next18 Decoder Socket
  • High quality motor and drive mechanism for smooth running
  • DCC Sound option
  • NEM Coupler pockets
  • Separately fitted handrails and wipers
  • A selection of discs so you may apply your chosen headcode
  • Etched radiator fan grill with separate fan
