Re: Rapido's NP Boxcar Update - reserving a single car vs a four-pack.

I asked the question below, and found the answer in a direct email to Rapido. You can reserve a single car by emailing them, or perhaps by calling them.

Has anybody figured out how to order single cars? I could only sign up for four-packs. I want a couple of cars, maybe three, but not all the same era.

The Rapido cars are from the 10000-13999 series with 7/8 Murphy ribbed ends. The last 500 cars in the series, 14000-14499, had 3/5 Dreadnaught ends. And NP changed the number of grab irons on the side of the last series to 7 from the 6 on the earlier series. I am very doubtful that the ends on the Rapido car will be easy to remove for a conversion to the dreadnaught series of boxcars.

I wonder if any NP experts have thought about other cars that could be modelled by modifying these cars? Do these cars have that potential?
