Rapido FL9s Are Back - Rebuilt

Postby JamesRR » Thu Mar 10, 2016 10:58 am

For those interested - Rapido announced they are doing a run of the "rebuilt" FL9s. These are the rebuilds done in the 80s by Chrome Locomotive.
Multiple paint schemes.

I have a few of the first run of FL9s and they are fantastic locos. The sound decoders are also amazing, I highly recommend them.

They are running the NH(ConnDOT) Chrome Crankshaft version,MN silver/blue,MN silver/blue/red,and
Maine Eastern(barefooted).
The MN silver/blue/red is close to the LIRR's FL9AC's paint scheme.
