Rapido Trains HO scale Santa Fe rebuilt RDC set

Read this review from the September 2019 Model Railroader
Rapido Trains HO Santa Fe rebuilt RDC set
For the first time in plastic the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Ry.’s rebuilt pair of Budd Rail Diesel Cars (RDCs) are available in HO scale from Rapido Trains. The models aren’t merely decorated in warbonnet paint but are superdetailed to match their unique prototypes. We reviewed a DC-only version of a Rapido HO scale Budd RDC-1 in the July 2018 issue. Our ATSF review sample includes a dual-mode ESU LokSound that provides sounds produced from prototype recordings on both Digital Command Control (DCC) and direct-current (DC) layouts.
