The Rapido Trains Inc. HO Scale FA-2 and FPA-2 was widely regarded as one of the best locomotive releases of 2017. The first run of freight FA-2 and dual-service FPA-2 locomotives majored in those gorgeous 1950s delivery schemes. Here's what Model Railroad News wrote about this model:

"From head to toe, Rapido has done its homework and the FA-2, and its 1:87 renderings are easily the best and most authentic reproductions of the Alco-GE prototype to ever run on HO-gauge rails, period.... Rapido has once again hit it out of the ballpark; the company's new HO-scale Alco FA-2 is a home run indeed."
