Rapido Trains Inc. is delighted to offer a special release of our Superior Stainless Mid-Train Dome with all new (and improved!) tooling. Everybody loves a good dome car, and both Canadian Pacific and VIA Rail have almost always run The Canadian with a minimum of two per train. Since the late 1990s, four domes has been the de-facto standard in the high season. And like the other Budd cars, Skylines have also been standard fare on the Atlantic, Ocean and lots of other trains. Heck - we even chartered our own Skyline back in 2015! The Skyline cars feature two different interior arrangements: Dome-Coach (1955-1983) has coach seats on the lower level of the long end and operates long-end forward. Dome-Coffee Shop (1983-present) has a coffee shop on the lower level of the long end and operates short-end (lounge) forward. The Rapido Mid-Train Dome Car features: Fully decorated and assembled with factory-installed grab irons Realistic stainless steel finish Full underbody detail with air, steam and electrical lines Fully detailed and decorated interiors - both as-built and rebuilt coffee-shop Window blinds at different heights for each car Operating diaphragms with etched-metal end gates Magnetic metal knuckle couplers at the correct height Free-rolling trucks with metal wheelsets and integral power pickups Track-powered interior lighting including dome lights 22” Minimum radius (can be modified for 18” minimum)
