Atlas has announced a number of new items. Here they are:

  • HO DASH 8-40C & 8-40CW Locomotives

New Road Numbers & Paint Schemes!

(Technical artwork shown)

First built for Union Pacific in the late 1980's by General Electric, the DASH 8-40C diesel locomotives were identified by an enlarged exhaust stack and the mounting of the dynamic brake grids in a square-like unit behind the cab, which housed an enlarged equipment blower fan. These six-axle, 4,000 hp engines are still in service today in North America.

The 4,000hp Dash 8-40CW was produced by General Electric between 1989 and 1993 as a follow-up to the successful Dash 8-40C locomotive. The most distinguishing feature of this model was the introduction of GE?s version of the wide-nose ?North American Safety Cab.? This style of cab would become a common sight on railroads across the country. Four major railroads purchased the Dash 8-40CW in fairly large quantities, including Conrail, CSX, Santa Fe and Union Pacific. Most of these units are still in regular mainline and heavy-haul freight service today. Due to various mergers, they can also be seen operating for new owners Norfolk Southern and BNSF.

Features Include:
-Ditch lights (8-40CW only)
-Number boards, sand fill hatch, and marker lights where appropriate by railroad (8-40CW only)
-Realistic die-cast underframe
-Factory-equipped with AccuMate? knuckle couplers
-Coupler pocket designed to accept AccuMate? Proto-couplers
-Highly detailed coupler cut bars
-Multiple unit hoses and trainline hoses
-Five-pole skewed armature motor with dual flywheels for optimum performance at all speeds
-Separately-installed scale windshield wipers, metal grab irons and fine scale handrails
-Directional lighting
-Painted crew members
-Snowplow and piping on trucks
-Recommended minimum radius: 22?

AccuMate? couplers are made under license from AccuRail, Inc.

Atlas Master? Series Silver Additional Features:

-NMRA 8-pin plug for DCC (Decoder-ready)

Atlas Master? Series Gold Additional Features:

  • HO RS-3 & RSD-4/5 Locomotives

New Paint Schemes & Road Numbers!

(N scale model shown)

Well over 1,300 RS-3 road-switcher locomotives were built by ALCO between 1950 and 1956. It can be considered one of the most successful four-axle diesel road-switchers ever produced by the builder. These 1,600hp locomotives were powered by an ALCO 244 V-12 engine which was complimented by rugged GE electrical components. The RS-3 was truly a versatile locomotive. It could be found in virtually every type of service from passenger and commuter runs to heavy-haul and local freight assignments. Original owners of the RS-3 tended to be in the eastern and central regions of the US (with heavier concentrations in the northeast and southeast).

During this same time-period, ALCO offered a six-axle road-switcher which was more commonly found in the west. The RSD-4/5 was externally very similar to the RS-3, having six-axle trucks as an obvious spotting feature. They produced the same 1,600hp as an RS-3, but offered increased tractive effort due to the use of a larger generator. Many RSD-4/5s were assigned to operate in mountainous territory (with varying degrees of success) on the Southern Pacific, Santa Fe and the Utah Railway.

Features Include:
-Separately-applied handrails and stanchions, including separate drop step detail
-Directional lighting
-Factory installed AccuMate? couplers
-Dual flywheel-equipped five-pole skewed armature motor for optimum performance at all speeds
-Metal grab irons
-Accurate painting and printing

AccuMate? couplers are made under license from AccuRail, Inc.

  • HO Pulpwood Flat Car

New Road Numbers & Paint Schemes!

(Model from previous run shown)

Pulpwood is not a specific type of wood, but actually tree limbs that are cut to a specified length, then turned into wood pulp and used in the paper industry. Early paper making had the trees near the paper plant. As timber resources were diminished, the need for transporting pulpwood began to rise. Railroads were seen as an efficient method of transporting pulpwood. Pulpwood in the Southeast and Northeast is generally cut into four-foot or less lengths and loaded onto "V-deck" bulkhead flat cars. The Atlas pulpwood flat is a reproduction of an early 1950s General Steel Castings "V-deck" design.

Features Include:
-Ready-to run
-Rugged die-cast chassis
-Stirrups
-Plastic deck & bulkheads
-Separate air reservoir
-Brake cylinder
-Triple valve
-Open or closed bulkheads to match the prototype
-Simulated detailed pulpwood load
