Remember we only built 98 copies of the engine, it wil not be reproduced. The engines have left Rapido and are in transit to us.

Dear Customers,

We were asked by Rapido today if we would like to have an exclusive, totally unique Via FP7A engine for which Rapido has had many requests. Here's the background:

In the 1970s, Canadian Pacific transferred ownership of several locomotives to VIA Rail Canada. The official changeover occurred in 1979, but CP began repainting the locomotives in VIA colours in 1978. FP7 1418 was probably the first CP F-unit painted in VIA colours, because they didn't get it right! The blue of the carbody was extended onto the roof and around the windshields. 1418 carried this unique paint scheme throughout its VIA career.

We are only building 100 of the engines.
