CPR D10 model Posted on 03 Sep 08:22

A few months ago I was pleasantly surprised to see a new Canadian company giving tidbits of info on a new diecast/plastic model of a Canadian D10 steam engine. As it turns out Shira Trains will be releasing 3 versions of the D10...1057, 1059, 1100. I am in the older bracket of modelers which grew up with models in the steam era and first generation diesels. I have only seen pictures and a couple of videos but from what I see it appears Shira is on the right track. When I receive my engine I plan to do a review. It appears that Rapido is getting close to releasing their plastic version of a CPR Hudson which I believe will rival the brass versions. Stay tuned as the war heats up. Eric
