CP Rail Angus Van (As Preserved) – Rapido Trains UK Exclusive

Part of the collection


Rapido Trains UK presents a special commission of a Rapido Trains Inc product.


In an unusual turn of fate, Rapido Trains Inc recently announced their N Gauge Wide Vision Cabooses, and a member of the staff here happened to realise that there was one preserved at Mangapps here in the UK.. So we present a limited run of 50 of these on a first come first served basis.


Between 1972 and 1981, Canadian Pacific’s Angus Shops in Montreal built over 300 modern, wide-vision cabooses or “vans” and thus gained the nickname “Angus Van”. They proved popular with crews and many are still on the road today, as shoving platforms or rider cars in MOW service. The Angus Van is similar to many other wide-vision cabooses that are commonly seen throughout North America. One of which, CP 434677 has the distinction of being preserved in the UK at the Mangapps Railway museum in Essex, regularly operating British rolling stock and locomotives.
