    Hi everyone.

    I wrote to Rapido trains requesting to buy some parts I needed for a coach car I have, and I also asked them if they would be interested in producing the FRISCO FIREFLY set. This is the email I got back. I know its not EXACTLY Promising, but, they did say, MAYBE!!! I intend to stay in contact with them in hopes they may decide to produce these.

    Hi William,

    Thanks for getting in touch!

    Which car is missing the trucks and interior? I take it this car was used
    by someone for a kitbash. If we have the necessary bits in the back I
    would be happy to help out.

    As for doing FRISCO cars, I hadn't thought of it. Maybe at some point...

    I just aquired my first 4 pieces of Rapido trains into my collection and
    I first have to say how impressed I am with their quality and the detail
    is AMAZING to say the least, however, one of the cars was missing the
    trucks and the interior. I am wondering if I can get these parts from you

    I also would like to know if you would be willing to make FRISCO
    passenger cars. I have been a HO Scale Modeler for 30+ years and although
    Im not what some would refer to as a rivet counter. I have noticed your
    company makes the correct cars for a run of FRISCO FIREFLY Passenger
    cars. I have attached pictures of the brass version of the cars I am
    inquiring about, and yes, there is a market for this 3 car set. The
    pictures are of both sides of the 3 car set. I know there were more cars
    in the FIREFLY TRAIN, but these are the only 3 made.
