N Scale Dash 8-40CM – PWRS Exclusive

Pacific Western Rail Systems (PWRS) is offering two exclusive numbers on our forthcoming BC Rail (Post-2010) scheme Dash 8-40CM locomotives in N Scale. These ex-BC Rail units, now part of the huge Canadian National fleet, are seen all over Canada and the USA either on CN trackage or trading horsepower hours with any of the other big class ones.

The Rapido N Scale Dash 8-40CM model features:

  • Accurately scaled from prototype blueprints – completely designed from new
  • Roadname-specific details including bell position, single or double rear headlights, with or without battery boxes behind cab, horns, tall or short sand fillers, CN or BCOL style ditch lights and more!
  • An insane level of underbody detail with air filters, many separate pipes and moulded traction motor cabling and air/control pipe runs.
  • Heavy, die-cast chassis with a powerful coreless motor and dual flywheels
  • Operational headlights and real lights with operational factory-installed ditch lights (plus rock lights on BCOL locomotives)
  • Separate grab irons and handrails installed at the factory
  • DC/Silent (Next18 DCC Ready) or DC/DCC/Sound (ESU LokSound) options
  • Accurate sounds recorded from a real General Electric Dash 8-40CM
  • Factory-installed couplers mounted at the correct height

As usual, these locomotives will be made to order.

Order deadline is November 19th, 2018.
Delivery in mid 2019.
