We’ve been waiting for this for months (since the tour was announced) and finally June 1st arrived. Jason brought his pre-production models of “The Canadian” to Moncton as part of Rapido Trains’ “The Canadian on Tour”
Eventually the whole train (except for locos) stretched out on the tables in front of us. What an impressive site! From the exterior and interior details to the working interior lights these passenger cars could be considered works of art.
Then he started unpacking the locomotives. The A-B-A set of FP9′s in Tuscan Red and Grey was incredible! The amount of detail Jason managed to put into these locomotive was amazing! The two VIA versions of the locomotives came next. Each were slightly different in some details but, according to Jason, were 100% accurate to photos taken on specific days.
