Plans to produce a ‘OO’ gauge ready-to-run model of the BR Class 41 prototype High Speed Diesel Train (HSDT) have been put on hold by Rapido Trains and Locomotion Models.

First announced at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition in November 2015, uncertainty surrounding the current economic climate has been cited as the main reason behind the decision by Rapido Trains noting in its most recent UK newsletter the project has not been cancelled but “has been ‘paused’ for the time being”.
