Rapido are producing the famous Liverpool & Manchester Railway 0-4-2 in two versions: one is as it starred in the LMR’s centenary celebrations in 1930 (after its rebuild at Crewe Works) and then in its 1980s condition. These have some period specific details that will not be found on Thunderbolt.
All versions feature die-cast metal and injection moulded plastic construction, a high quality motor and mechanism, Next18 decoder socket, NEM coupler pockets and a coupler that enables it to couple to other historic coaches from other manufacturers.

Lion (1980 Condition) features open tender spring boxes, firebox mounted pressure gauge, fireman’s toolbox, separately supplied loco and tender safety chains and comes in Ruston green and black livery.

We’re also delighted to announce that we’re also able to start taking orders for the non-Titfield versions of Rapido's ‘Loriot Y’ machinery truck. The GWR built just two of these unusual looking vehicles to Diagram G39, No. 41989 in 1937 and No. 41990 in 1939.
The model features injection moulded and die-cast construction with separately fitted detail parts, metal bearings for smooth running, NEM coupler pockets and additional tie-down points to reflect key periods in these vehicles’ careers.

Priced at £33.95 each (RRP: £39.95)
We will open the order book for non-Titfield 'Toad' brakevans early in the new year.
