They were mum about most of those, of course, but I did get to hear about Jordan kissing a Rohr Turboliner later that same week.
If that Turbo comes to be, you can bet you'll see one on the Onondaga Cutoff - Amtrak used those regularly on the Chicago Line between New York City and Niagara Falls in the 1990's!
No matter who I've met from Rapido, they have all been fun, informed, and wacky in that happy model railroader / railfan kind of way, and it feels like I've known these guys forever. The three of us share some modeling interests, especially Jordan and I who have a lot in common in Conrail and in SP interests. After a tour of the 'OC' we took a few photos of the guys in the layout room.
Employees from Rapido all seem to love layout visits, and Jordan is a Conrail fan. Here's a group shot of all three of us next to CP282. Rapido's presence on the layout is growing. Later this year Rapido's much-anticipated B36-7 models are due, and several are headed to the Onondaga Cutoff to bolster the 4-axle fleet.
This caps off a busy summer on the Onondaga Cutoff and I'm excited for the fall. Next targets include some work to finally finish up the Doelger Brewing complex - as always, plenty of things to come here soon!
