GMD-1 Locomotive
New Run - GMD-1 "Modern Version"
Rapido has focused more on the "transition eras" of the 1950s and the 1970s in our model releases, and the contemporarey modellers have been bugging us for more modern stuff. So we are pleased to announce the 1400-series GMD-1 locomotives in N scale.

The fact that the GMD-1 is still widely used across Canada despite major fleet rationalizations over the last ten years is a testament to its resilience and reliability. In 1988, CN began a rebuild program on its GMD-1 fleet. The 1600s - locomotive class GR-612a or GMD-1A - retained their three-axle trucks and small fuel tank and were used on branchlines. The 1400s - locomotive class GR-412a or GMD-1B - were used on mainlines and in yards. These had two-axle Flexicoil trucks recovered from retired lightweight GP9s.

By the late 1990s, the number of light-rail-equipped branchlines had dwindled to a handful. The 1600s were upgraded to 1400s - the larger, 2000-gallon fuel tank and two-axle Flexicoil trucks were added from retired 1100-series GMD-1 locomotives. These new 1400s, numbered 1430-1444, were classified GR-412b. General Motors Roadswitcher, 4 Axles,1200 horsepower, group B. We are releasing every number of GR-412b operational as of 2014, along with an unnumbered version so you can have the specific unit of your choice.

N Scale GMD-1 As Delivered 1000 Series

In stock - Quantities extremely limited
Rapido Trains is delighted to announce the N scale GMD-1 locomotive.
Prototype Information: It was built between 1958 and 1960 by GM of London. It is an extended 1200 HP roadswitcher, eqully at home on the branchline, the mainline, and in the yard. Rapido Trains will be offering this all new N scale model in both the original 1000-series and the later rebuilt 1600-series versions.
Primarily designed for freight service, but did see some use with Steam Generator Cars when needed and pressed into passenger service. In 1988, CN remanufactured 15 GMD-1's in a major rebuild program. Among the external changes were the addition of anticlimbers, ditch light brackets, straight exhaust stacks in addition to internal mechanical upgrades. The new 1600-series units were called GMD-1A's.
The GMD-1 was exclusively built for Canadian National and Northern Alberta Railways ... and because of its unique appearance, quickly became a Canadian railway icon with a devoted following. They are still in service today.

Model Specifications:
This all new N scale offering will feature a DC/DCC dual mode chip in the "standard" version. It will also be offerred with an ESU DC/DCC/Sound Loksound decoder.
Heavy, die-cast chassis
