The latest on the Titfield Thunderbolt, Lion and GWR B-Set coaches have been announced.
Rapido Trains has received colour samples of its Titfield Thunderbolt sets and has confirmed it has signed off the models and production is now well underway, with delivery scheduled later this summer.
Alongside the Titfield Thunderbolt are two colour samples of Lion in its 1930 and 1980 liveries. These feature the correct detail differences for the era alongside the livery difference. Delivery is expected to also be in the summer.
Finally, tooling samples have also arrived for the GWR B-Set coaches and 1907 RCH private owner wagons. The B-set also features open droplight windows as a part the customers can fit. The factory-fitted glazing is expected to be removed easily, and a small selection of alternative glazing will be supplied in a polybag with the window in the open position.
