Rapido GLa Hopper


It looks to me like Rapido is aiming for the modernized PRR version (higher rivet row for the sides of the hopper bays, and inboard top eave angle), while the Bowser car is a post-Safety Appliances but otherwise as-built Gla. The Rapido tooling sample still needs some work (clean up the rivet configuration on the sides, upper taper on the side posts, add the reinforcements on the side posts for the crossties). Unfortunately, this means all non-PRR roadnames will not be accurate.
