And another that needs a bit of buffing up:



I don't think this was particularly high speed, but it would make an interesting model.

The CN/Amtrak units were built by United Aircraft and were gas-turbine powered.  I got to ride in one on the B&O from DC to Oakland, MD back in the early '70's.  Not a great rider, as I recall, though that probably had as much to do with Chessie's track maintenance as with the unit.  They ran several sets on the Hartford-Boston run pre-electrification.  Amtrak had a different type of turbo unit on the NYC - Albany run as well.

Well according to RAPIDO web site, UA designed the train and Pullman-Standard built it on the US side and MLW built it for Canada.

Also the UA Turbo bread and butter service was Grand Central Terminal to South Station.
Boston to Hartford? Well maybe not the UA Turbo set.

That's a Russian motor car. Looks like they copied the Budd design.

Dr EMD is indeed correct.  It is Russian.  I found it on this website.

They also had this "Russian RS-1"
