with the group.

Bill Schneider of Branchline Trains will be joining Rapido Trains as of May
1. Bill will be working to develop models of American prototypes for Rapido
so get your wish lists together. I understand that freight cars are in the

I understand also that part of the deal is that Bill...and perhaps Jason
Shron, president of Rapido, as well...will need to find there way down to
Cocoa Beach next Jan 7-10 in order to well...warm up...and to ferret out the
best candidates for American prototypes. Included, of course, will be my
personal list...UP this and UP that...although a good model of the NYC 1922

Hmmm. A UP HK-50-1?
