Rapido® UAC TurboTrain - Penn Central/DOT 3-Car Set (DC/DCC/Sound), HO Scale

On December 20, 1967 the United Aircraft TurboTrain rocketed to an amazing 170.8 MPH on the Pennsylvania Railroad in New Jersey. To this date, this is still the fastest speed ever achieved by a production train in the United States or Canada.

On April 22, 1976 a Canadian National TurboTrain reached a speed of 140.6 MPH between Montreal and Toronto. This is still the Canadian speed record.

In 2022, Rapido Trains Inc. is delighted to announce Turbo 2.0. Finally, TurboTrain fans around the world can enjoy a model of their favorite train that runs and sounds as well as it looks.
