New rolling stock for Metropolitan E Class announced

17 July 2023
Rapido Trains UK is offering two new wagons as additions to its Private Owner collection.

Since the announcement of its Metropolitan E Class locomotives, Rapido Trains claims it has been inundated with requests to produce some suitable rolling stock.

Research discovered that the Met had several 5 plank open wagons very close to Rapido’s private owner wagon tooling. These vehicles had a long life and were subsequently repainted into different liveries, both of which will be offered by Rapido;

  • SKU 967022 - MET No.554 in grey livery with single-sided brakes.
  • SKU 967023 – London Transport No.A945 in grey livery with double-sided brakes.

These wagons join the Met E Class locomotives, alongside the already announced Alfred Pratt and John J Tims private owners, which were both marked for returning to the Met Railway.

Both will be available through any Official Retailer or direct from Rapido Trains website. A Standard RRP of £32.95 applies and orderbooks close on August 14th, so you've got to be quick!
