    Ya, Ya, Ya, Ya!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I can not tell you how mappy I was when I went to my local hobby shop, and saw the sign "Canadisn Road names coming on new RDC2!". Sure, its HO, but that is okay [​IMG]

    These new RDCs will come in Canadian Road Names, made by Life Like. i believe they are being distributed by H&D. In many ways they will be bigger than the C Liner! Many modellers will want this model as it will run well, and unlike every affordable RDC to come out in HO, it is correct to almost every detail, other than those unique to the RR. (like BCRs RDC2 only had one 'cab').

    Road Names, and number of different versions of paint

    CPR, 2
    BCR, 1
    CNR, 2
    QNSL (?) 1
    Undec, 1

    Happy Railroading!!

    They are, Canada's H&D hobbies got all the left overs, and has repainted them into Via Rail, and CNR colours and is flogging them for a bad price. But, they look great!

    Happy Railroading!!

    Yes, they probably got them from their supplier, not Athearn.

    Happy Railroading!!
