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 Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (often referred to as the Milwaukee Road) (reporting mark MILW), was a Class I railroad that operated in the Midwest and Northwest of the United States from 1847 until 1980, when its Pacific Extension (Montana, Idaho, and Washington) was abandoned following a bankruptcy.

The company went through several official names and faced bankruptcy several times in that period. The railroad no longer exists as a separate entity, but much of its trackage continues to be used by its successor and other roads. The eastern half of the system merged into the Soo Line Railroad on January 1, 1986.

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.
