Problems w/ Rapido New F40PH Ph2 - CSX 9999 & 9999

For those interested in Rapido’s CSX F40PH Ph2 #s 9999 & 9998 you may wish to note that besides incorrect wheel side frames (that Rapido will replace if you contact them) and the hole on the roof in between number boards, a more difficult fix is the removal of the two glaringly obvious lighted acrylic strobe lights placed on the roof that apparently were not ever on the real locomotives.:slightly_frowning_face:


Hi D.B., welcome top the site!

Thank you for this information. Glad to read that Rapido will replace the side frames. I know next to nanda about modern locos.

Thanks Fred! :blush:

Mr. Manley, if you have the interest and time, we are running our Inaugural Railroad Campaign: Since this is the inaugural campaign, the rules are pretty flexible - anything railroad related:

Civilian or military
Any scale
Freight or passenger
Revenue or non-revenue

We would be happy to have you in it.
