Rapido's New China Factory

Here's a video Jason did of his new factory in China. What perked my interest is what he said near the end.

I've long thought that if I had the money to fund a project, Rapido would be the first place I go. Now, who's got the money?

Well I'm waiting for my inheritance. If and when I ever get it I'm torn between USA made flex track and rolling stock such as diesel/steam engines. Could be a long wait. :|

Rapido have already proven their point of willingness to work with others by producing items for Realtrack and RevolutioN trains in Britain. Top notch models too.

Jason is super cool. He even added the TT SW1200 model to one of his news letters back when it came out even though he had nothing to do with it.

Count me in on a kickstarter - GP9? F7? PA?

Just for kicks I filled out this survey-
https://www.walthers.com/survey
Walthers has it online to ask what new products they should make. And their scale choices include TT!
So I figured what the heck, I put down an F-7 and a 50 foot boxcar. They ask why and I said that although we recently got our first RTR locomotive we could use another common one, and they wouldn't have any competition!

I requested an ALCO RS-3 in TT Scale, still no word back as of yet.
