Owners of Rapido Trains
Sidura divides her time between Rapido and fiction writing. At Rapido she is responsible for strategic and financial planning, copy editing and keeping Jason from buying a Concorde. Her first novel, Holding My Breath, was published in 2007 and she is currently working on a collection of short stories. Please Click Here to visit Sidura’s web site. Jason and Sidura have three gorgeous children: Boaz, Dalya and Isaac. With three kids to raise and a company to run, Jason and Sidura last went on a date in 2006. (Hair comment: Sidura has wonderful hair. Jason on the other hand hides his under a hat … a lot)

Josh has quickly become an invaluable member of our team and has already learned how to be patient with Jason. He’s so good that he’s now a project manager, but as we only hired him to buy the milk we’re getting a good deal. $10 goes far these days, and that’s what he earns a week. If you see the Rapido Bus on a weekend excursion around Toronto, chances are it’s Josh behind the wheel. (Hair comment: Josh styles his hair so carefully we don’t actually know if it is his.)
Michael started his "modelling career" in HO, then switched to N scale on a whim, and is now coming back to HO. Somewhere in his grandparents basement is a partially finished N-scale prototype of an industrial spur on CN's Meaford Subdivision in Barrie, ON, but this has been abandoned for a new HO layout of CN's Newmarket Subdivision. (Hair comment: You wouldn't be able to tell from the photo, but Mike's haircuts cost him $50. It hasn't helped him with the ladies much...)
Director, Technology and Projects
Mohan is very active in the Toronto-area N scale community, and is currently president of the Scarborough Model Railroaders. Mike and Dave are also members of the club, and we're starting to think they might be planning a coup d'État at Rapido. (Hair comment: His hair is actually surprisingly intact for a man in his early 200s.)
Customer Service Representative
Sales Manager, United States
Craig works with American retailers from his base in California, partly because he prefers baseball (Go Angels!) to hockey (Go Ducks!) and partly because he considers poutine to be "exotic foreign food." He has never been to a Tim Horton's, but he has seen both Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot in concert. (Hair comment: Craig has the same hair as his grandson, although the grandson's hair is growing in ... which makes Craig a little envious.)
JOHN SHERIDAN has worked for various model railroad manufacturers designing artwork and providing technical assistance for various projects. He likes to tell people that they have at least one piece of his work on their layout at any given time.
John is a huge fan of the New Haven railroad. He has worked very hard to get manufacturers to produce more New Haven Railroad locomotives & rolling stock.
Noticing that Jason seemed to have a soft spot for the New Haven, John hatched a nefarious plot to insert himself deep into Rapido. His goal: make sure that Rapido New Haven Railroad projects keep flowing indefinitely. So far, his plot has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. If no one notices the Ceti Eel John implanted in Jason’s ear (Thanks Kahn!), he can keep this going for a very long time.
