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.

This set of a power car, coach and another power car toured the United States in 1971, to help introduce Amtrak. It made stops throughout the US to much fanfare. 

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.

  • HO Scale
