Product Description

Suits Atlas Dash8-40 chassis, or Dapol Class 67 chassis. Both need some work to make them fit. The story behind my developing these LRC models. After developing the Rocky Mountaineer models, I started working on other Canadian trains. I wanted the VIA Rail LRC cars. No manufacture had made models of these cars so I had to work out some other means of getting the train. I tried several scratch building methods for the cars, but they all fell short somewhere, usually with the windows. The best result I achieved was by drawing the cars on the computer, then laminating the print and moulding it over a form to get the shape, and attaching the body to a scratch-built chassis. Though a fairly satisfactory result, I thought I could do better. I posted photos of my efforts on the internet and was informed by someone who had seen my photos about a 3D design for the LRC cars and loco. The designs are for both VIA Rail and Amtrak LRC versions. After a long period of correspondence and negotiating I was able to upload the designs for sale to the wider band of modellers. I make no profits from these LRC models as I had no input to their design. I just wanted to make them available to the wider number of n scale modellers. So far there have been over 30 models purchased. I think my decision has been justified.
