Model Information: The folks over at Pullman-Standard had a bright idea! Passengers in double bedrooms pay a higher fare than roomette passengers, so why don?t we put the bedrooms in the middle of the car so that those passengers get the smoothest ride? And thus the Rapido Trains Inc. 10-5 (10 ROOMETTES - 5 BEDROOMS) Sleeper was born, thanks to the bright ideas at Pullman!

The 10-5 Sleeper is Pullman plan number 4186, a CN and Erie / Erie-Lackawanna prototype. 10-5 sleepers were ubiquitous throughout North America (almost as much as the 10-6), and our car is painted in a variety of paint schemes. The 10-5 Sleeper is available with partial skirting or with fixed steps, as appropriate.

With all of the features of our Panorama Line cars, this new N scale model gives N scale modelers yet another super-detailed car to add to their consists.


Road Name History:
The Erie Lackawanna Railway (reporting mark EL), known as the Erie Lackawanna Railroad until 1968, was formed from the 1960 merger of the Erie Railroad and the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad. The official motto of the line was "The Friendly Service Route".

Like many railroads in the northeast already financially vulnerable from the expanding U.S. Interstate Highway System, the line was severely weakened fiscally by the extent, duration and record flood levels due to Hurricane Agnes in 1972. It would never recover, and most of the corporation's holdings were subsumed into the federal rescue purchases creating Conrail in 1976, ending its days as an operating railroad company.

Brand/Importer Information:
Rapido Trains Inc. is a high-end manufacturer of model trains and accessories in HO, OO and N (North American 1:160 and British 1:148) scales. The firm's mission is to recreate the entire rail travel experience, from fully-detailed interiors and under-frames on models to fully-wired telephone poles for model railroads.

The name RAPIDO was introduced by Canadian National in 1965 to headline the railway's high-speed intercity passenger services. Until the mid-1980s, RAPIDO stood for fast schedules, frequent trains, and superb service.

Today, Rapido Trains continues the RAPIDO concept with state-of-the-art models and attention to fine detail. This company is not related to the venerable (and now defunct) German manufacturer Arnold Rapido, nor the present-day Arnold (which is owned by the United Kingdom's Hornby), Canadian based Rapido Trains was founded in 2003.
