Pre-Order


Rapido # 23526/27 Road # 4201 & 4301/4203 & 4303

The Alco PA series locomotives are considered by many to be the most attractive diesel locomotives ever produced. The PA locomotives were built by a partnership of American Locomotive and General Electric between 1946 and 1953. They offered two models, the PA-1 initially followed by the PA-2. Both were powered by Alco’s 16-cylinder 244 diesel engine generating 2,000 HP in the PA-1 and 2,250 in the PA-2. 

The PA locomotives were designed to compete with General Motors’ EMD E-units in the passenger locomotive market. While one could argue the Alcos won in style, they did not win in reliability. Their 244 prime movers could not unseat the EMD 567, and the PAs were demoted to secondary service on many lines. Most were retired as passenger service declined in the 1960s, and nearly all were scrapped.


Features:
  • Correct nose and roof profiles 3D-scanned from the prototype
  • Loads of roadname-specific details
  • Non-dynamic brake versions,
  • Full underbody piping and conduit 
  • Separate grab irons and handrails installed at the factory 
  • Etched-metal grilles, where appropriate 
  • Lit number boards, headlights and green and white class lights
  • Lit control stands and full cab interior 
  • Operating Gyralite or red Mars light, where appropriate 
  • Rapido’s proven drive system adapted from the FA-2 
  • Now with a TCS Sound Decoder featuring Rapido’s exclusive Alco 244 sounds, programmed to operate seamlessly with Rapido’s other sound-equipped locomotives.

Comes in 2 road number sets - You must select road numbers!!
