HO Scale GMD-1 Locomotive

HO GMD-1 CN NoodlePre-production samples shown.

Rapido Trains Inc. and MLW are delighted to announce the HO scale GMD-1 locomotive. The GMD-1 was built between 1958 and 1960 by General Motors of London. The locomotive is an extended 1200 HP roadswitcher, equally at home on the branchline, on the mainline, and in the yard. The 1000-series GMD-1 features A-1-A trucks to distribute its 120 tons over six axles and allow travel on light rail branches in the Prairies. The 1900-series GMD-1 features 2-axle Flexicoil trucks and a steam generator for passenger mainline and switching duties.

Even though the GMD-1 was exclusively built for Canadian National and Northern Alberta Railways, it quickly became a Canadian railway icon with a devoted following. Simply put, there is nothing quite like the GMD-1, and it is still in service today.
