New Haven 8600-series Coaches

Post by Statkowski » Tue Feb 17, 2015 11:48 am

If you want to run trains, or just want display models, Rapido Trains is coming out with accurate 8600-series coaches (Pullman-Standard stainless steel).

Here's the offering from Rapido Trains:

From Rapido and their distributors, they'll be available in two styles: Delivery scheme with skirts, and McGinnis scheme without skirts. Also available, without skirts, will be Penn Central, MBTA and Unlettered.

However, also available will be the McGinnis scheme with skirts. These are available only through the NHRHTA. All three, through the NHRHTA, will be twenty dollars less than MSRP.
