Product Details

Overview

It’s back! The Dash 8-40CM (also known as the C40-8M or “Dash 8”) returns in N scale for a second time, with new road numbers. What doesn’t change is the extraordinary amount of detail and silky-smooth performance that Rapido N scale delivers. Now for some quick history...

The Dash 8 was introduced in 1990 with a total of 55 units for Canadian National (2400-2454) and 26 units for BC Rail (4601-4626). A further three locomotives (401-403) were built for the QNSL in March 1994. With CN’s purchase of BC Rail came the fleet of Dash 8s, which would see them released into general service across North America. It was not uncommon to see BC Rail Dash 8s in Alberta, all the way to Florida.
