    Good article, David! Thanks for the link! It wasn't too long ago people were griping about things made in Japan. I had no idea Rapido was a Canadian Company! Good for Canada!

    I like Rapido's coaches. They are very detailed and look really nice.

    Apparently, his products are still made in China, for good reasons (which are explained in the article). But there is still a strong Canadian angle to this ... and it's great that a small company is succeeding. Rob

    I personally know one of the employees who does their R&D.

    He's a fellow MTB'er like me and loves trains...obviously...one of these days, he's going to bring his Turbo over. Even if only I can listen to it. I only wish I had enough layout to run it.
