The popular ALCo PA and PB series returns for a second run! Following the success of the first run, Rapido is pleased to offer new schemes and a twist: ATSF 51A, B and L! These were the three Santa Fe PAs that were repowered in 1954 with 567C prime movers putting out 1750 horsepower. To account for the extra space needed to house the taller EMD power assemblies, the middle of the car body was raised with the addition of dual exhausts and four button-top EMD-style fans. While successful, this endeavour was not economical in the long run and not repeated on any other ALCo PA.

We are also excited to offer the ALCo-GE and the short-lived MLW-GE demonstrator in its Canadian National schemes, in addition to the new schemes being offered. As usual, the ALCo PA and PB Locomotives feature the highest quality, road name-specific details, silky smooth drives and razor sharp paint and printing.

The Rapido Trains HO scale ALCo PA-1 + PB-1 locomotives feature:

  • Correct nose and roof profiles 3D-scanned from the prototype
  • Loads of road name-specific details
  • ATSF re-powered units feature unique roof profiles and EMD-style exhaust and fans
  • A units and A-B sets available

  • Operating Gyralite or red Mars light, where appropriate
  • Rapido’s proven drive system
  • DC/Silent (21-pin DCC Ready) or DC/DCC/Sound options
