Rapido reveals special edition of its Andrew Barclay Fireless locomotive

04 April 2024
Rapido is expanding its ‘Caledonia’ 0-4-0 Fireless range, with a G. Fawkes ‘What If’ Livery No. 31.

The special G. Fawkes Gunpowder Works No.31. locomotive will make an ideal companion to the previously launched Not-Quite-Mink.

Available to pre-order now, the OO model will be available in DCC Ready (SKU965011) and DCC Sound (SKU965511) versions at the same price as the standard models.

Specification highlights of Rapido’s new Fireless include a factory-installed speaker, NEM Coupler pockets, an ESU E24 decoder socket, variations of reservoir supports buffer guides, reducing valves, and also some versions with an extra tank and injector.

The models can then be personalised with oil and electric lamps, cab side windows, low doors, shutters, and full cab doors. 

Currently in tooling, the order book is open for the new model, and you can pre-order your DCC Ready (RRP £139.95) or DCC Sound Fitted (RRP £249.95) versions directly from Rapido’s website, or from any of its official retailers.
