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 and a new scheme. What doesn’t change is the extraordinary amount of detail and silky-smooth performance that Rapido N scale delivers.

The Dash 8-40CM 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 operating everywhere on CN's expanded North American network, and even all the way to Florida and Texas.
