  NEW! HO Scale Canadian National H-6 Ten Wheeler!

     It just wouldn't be right for us to keep CN steam modellers stuck in the siding, so we're delighted to announce the Canadian National H-6 class Ten Wheeler steam locomotives!
Originally built by the Canadian Northern Railway, Canadian National’s H-6 class 4-6-0 were a light, general-purpose locomotive perfectly suited to freight or passenger work across the entire CNR system. They lasted in regular service into the late 1950s with several being preserved after the end of steam.

     Over the years, several modifications were made to the H-6 class which created some visually distinct locomotives. These include but are not limited to installing new steel cabs to replace the original wooden ones, conversion of part of the fleet from coal to oil fired, and wooden extensions to the tender bunker for those units that continued using coal.

Rapido’s H-6 will feature many optional details to accurately portray H-6s in several configurations and subclasses, including:
 
  • Coal (with or without an extended bunker) and Oil tenders
  • Wood or steel cabs
  • Manual or power reversers
  • Vertical or horizontal slat pilots
  • Two different bell locations
  • Two different headlight sizes
Like the D10, the H-6 drive will incorporate our smooth-running gear drive with flywheel allowing sure and silent operation. Here's a complete features list:
 
  • Designed from blueprints and field measurements
  • Factory-applied details specific for each road number
  • Smooth-running drive and heavy diecast weight centred above the drivers for exceptional pulling power
  • Blackened metal wheels and driving rods
  • Working head, marker and classification lights, as well as a flickering firebox light (not all lights available on DC models)
  • DCC sound version includes synchronized chuff, accurate whistle, bell and many other effects!
  • Accurate and complete piping, underbody and tender details
  • Accurate paint and decoration
  • 18" Minimum radius (22" recommended)

H-6-d 1536 has raised cab letters. They will be included in the box with every model.

The Rapido HO Scale CNR H-6 will come available in two paint schemes – the tilted vermilion wafer and the horizontal vermilion wafer, both applied to the tender – plus two painted/unlettered variations.
 
We are taking reservations now for the H-6-g and H-6-d. As usual, these locomotives will be made to order.
Like the D10, the H-6 order deadline is Canadian Thanksgiving, October 14th, 2019.

     Order Deadline: October 14, 2019  

  Estimated Delivery December 2020
