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.
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.
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:

We would be happy to have you in it.
