Rapido Trains Inc. and Locomotionmodels.com present Prototype HST Power Cars in 4mm scale/OO gauge.
Following the exclusive APT-E trainset and Stirling Single locomotive, Rapido Trains Inc. and Locomotion Models are excited to reveal a new partnership to produce the ground-breaking Prototype HST (HST-E) Power Cars in 4mm scale/OO gauge as part of the ‘National Collection in Miniature’ series.
For Rapido and Locomotion Models, the Prototype HST was an obvious follow-on from the APT-E project. With the iconic gas turbine trainset now in production both companies considered the NEC Warley National Model Railway Exhibition to be the perfect platform for the HST-E launch.
The model will be produced in 4mm scale/OO gauge and will be available exclusively from Locomotionmodels.com. Rapido will undertake a 3D scan of No. 41001 early next year and all stages of the models development will be communicated via regular website updates and the modelling press.
Further details of the train-pack configuration, liveries/numbers, retail price and delivery date will be provided in the future. Potential customers are advised to sign up to Rapido’s regular British newsletter and the Locomotionmodels.com newsletter to keep up with news of this exciting project.Enjoy more Rail Express reading in the monthly magazine.
