Latest News

It doesn't seem that long since Rapido Trains UK's last new announcement but they have returned with three new models.

HR Jones Goods EP - Not For Sale

First up is a true classic of Scotland, the Highland Railway Jones Goods 4-6-0. Introduced in 1894, these were the first 4-6-0 steam locomotives built for operation in Britain. Officially classed as the 'Big Goods' and later the 'I' Class. Despite the nickname 'Jones Goods' that was commonly applied to the class, it was Chief Engineer David Jones' Chief Draughtsman, David Anderson Hendrie, who suggested that the 4-6-0 arrangement, common in other countries, could work for the HR.

HR Jones Goods 4-6-0 #103 (Yellow - 1960s) - Pre Order

Withdrawals started in 1929 and were completed in 1940 but the story doesn't end there. The LMS saw fit to preserve one of thess historic machines and cosmetically restored pioneer LMS No.17916 (HR No.103). Tucked away inside St Rollox works along with Caledonian Railway 4-2-2 No.123 until 1958 when BR Scottish Region General Manager James Ness ordered it to be restored to service. From 1958 to 1965, 103 would operate for British Railways on railtours alongside other classic Scottish locomotives. The odd turn on a regularly scheduled passenger train was occasionally seen!

HR Jones Goods 4-6-0 #113 (Drummond Green - 1900s) - Pre Order

The HR Jones Goods 4-6-0 model tooling suite enables Rapido to produce all possible versions including three types of smokeboxes, four different chimneys, tenders and myriad smaller details. Six versions will make the first run of these locomotives.

  • 914001 / 914501 HR Jones Goods 4-6-0 #103 (Yellow - 1960s)

  • 914005 / 914505 LMS (ex-HR) Jones Goods 4-6-0 #17917 (Unlined Black)
  • 914006 / 914506 LMS (ex-HR) Jones Goods 4-6-0 #17924 (Lined Black)

DC/DCC Ready versions have a UK RRP of £219.95 with the current estimated Canadian RRP at $329.99 CAD. DCC Sound versions have a UK RRP of £319.99 with the current estimated Canadian RRP of $479.99 CAD.

While these Canadian prices are estimates and could change, Rapido pre-orders will received 10% discount off of the CAD RRP. The Canadian RRP estimates takes into account the removal of the UK VAT from the price.

BR (ex-GWR) AA20 'Toad' Brake Van #W114764 'Yeovil Pen Mill' (Grey) - Pre Order

The 'AA20', which was introduced in 1934. The requirement for brake vans ended in 1968 but that didn't mean the end of the 'Toads'. Many lasted into Departmental and even industrial use and a large number of 'Toads', including several AA20's have been preserved.

GWR AA20 'Toad' EP - Not For Sale

Rapido AA20 brake van has been designed using works drawings and includes a number of different optional parts to allow for variations within the design including different roof rain strips, different height footboards and different wheelsets. The model includes a full interior alongside a removable roof.

BR Dia.1/277 Ferry Van #B786873 (Bauxite) - Pre Order

The third and final new announcement is the BR Dia.1/277 VIX Ferry Van. Pressed Steel built two batches of Dia.1/227s, totalling 400 vehicles. It was nearly 42ft long (over headstocks) and had a massive 26ft 3in wheelbase. The sliding door (one on each side) was 13ft long and it could carry 20 tons.

BR Dia.1/277 VIX Ferry Van #GB787252 (Railfreight - Red & Grey) - Pre Order

The introduction of bogie vehicles fro cross-Channel traffic in the 1970s meant that the ferry vans, which had been coded VIX on BR's TOPS computer system, days were numbered. However, they found further use complementing the new, long wheelbase vans (such as the VBAs and VDAs) on domestic goods traffic or, increasingly, as barrier vehicles or on Departmental duties. This led to these ferry vans being re-coded on TOPS.

12 versions will form the first run of this new wagon.

  • 910001 BR Dia.1/277 Ferry Van #B786873 (Bauxite)
  • 910002 BR Dia.1/277 VIX Ferry Van #GB787298 (Bauxite - Double Arrows)

Class 31 EP - Not For Sale

Accurascale have announced their next OO gauge project, the The British Railways Brush Type 2, later known as the Class 30 and Class 31.

Brush Type 2 - Class 30 #D5549 (BR Green - Late Crest) - Pre Order

Ordered as a result of the British Transport Commission's modernisation plan of 1955, the first locomotive - numbered D5500 - was outshopped in September 1957. Eventually totalling 263 locomotives, the final example, D5862, being handed over to British Railways in October 1962. The discovery of metal fatigue issues with the original Mirrlees power unit in the early 1960s led to the decision to re-engine the entire fleet, BR choosing the familiar English Electric 12SVT instead, almost identical to that used in the Class 37 albeit downrated to 1,450hp.

Brush Type 2 - Class 31/1 #D5803 (BR Green - FYE & Double Arrows) - Pre Order

The fleet was split under the 1973 TOPS scheme as 31001-31019 (Class 31/0) and 31101-31328 (Class 31/1). Class 30 was reserved for the existing Mirrlees engined locomotives, although all were re-engined before TOPS renumbering. The early 1970s saw 24 locomotives upgraded with new alternators and were given the new TOPS sub class 31/4, numbers 31401-31424. A further 44 Class 31/4s were modified between 1983-1985, becoming 31425-31468.

Brush Type 2 - Class 31/4 #31409 (BR Blue with White Stripe - Small Arrows) - Pre Order

The Accurascale model has modular tooling that can be adapted to represent nearly all variations of this long-lived class from their as-built appearance right through to the present day. For the discerningly detailed minded, this includes three different styles of exhaust port (Mirrless 'pilot scheme', Mirrlees production and English Electric rebuilds), with or without roof fan grille, original/plated boiler port and water filler, additional roof panel for the 17 locos modified in their early days with uprated 1,600hp engines, different NRN roof antenna for both main cab styles, as-built 'Toffee Apple', production and refurbished bodysides, with water filler steps, plated steps and reskinned steps and standard or vertical 'one piece' radiator grilles.

Brush Type 2 - Class 31/1 #31110 (BR Railfreight Grey - Large Arrows) - Pre Order

LBSCR E1 EP

Lastly and not officially announced, yet... Rapido Trains UK have said that they will in the future produce a OO gauge model of the LBSCR E1 0-6-0T. This project was originally announced a few years back as a Model Rail exclusive but the project has now been handed over to Rapido Trains UK for a full release. No specific details about the individual models have been announced except that the first batch will mostly include British Railways & Isle of Wight versions first.

These cute little tank engines were designed by William Stroudley for the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway and were built between 1874 and 1891. While withdrawals started as early as 1911, the last of this class of locomotive lasted in British Railways service until 1961. Some made their way to the Isle of Wight, some were sold off to work in collieries (including the lone preserved one) and some worked in Southampton Docks.
