During 1965 ALCo started producing the 3,000 hp Century 630 Locomotive. It was produced concurrently with the 2,800 hp C-628, but it incorporated an advanced GE a.c. traction alternator which provided the extra 200 hp. The most distinctive spotting feature of the C-630 is the large aftercooler radiator housing which extends above the roofline (the aftercooler radiators enhanced the performance of the locomotive while operating under a heavy load). The C-630 featured a modified cab which offered more interior space for the crew. Through the end of production in the late 1960s, a total of 133 units were produced for railroads in the US and Canada.

 

Introduced in August 1963 by the American Locomotive Company, this 2,750 hp locomotive was billed as "the most powerful single-engine diesel locomotive ever built in the United States." As part of ALCo's Century Line, the C-628 was intended for heavy-haul road freight service throughout the country.

 New Paint Schemes!

O
1923 ARA (X-29) 40' Steel Box Car

(Technical artwork shown)

(Please Contact Your Atlas O Dealer)

In 1923, the ARA (American Railway Association) proposed a standard design all-steel box car for the railroads. While the design was certainly a good one, the car never became a recommended practice due to questions of the selected inside width. Nonetheless, quite a few railroads opted for the design and rostered sizeable fleets. The largest group of cars, by far, was class X-29 of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

Features Include:

  • Highly detailed ABS body

  • Die-cast chassis

  • Flat or corrugated ends are per the prototype

  • Detail variations as appropriate for each version

  • Different door styles

  • All metal separately-applied grab irons, ladders and stirrups

  • Accurate painting and lettering

  • Minimum diameter curve: O-31 (3-Rail)

  • Minimum radius curve: 24" (2-Rail)

(Technical artwork shown)

Four road numbers are available per road name except for Central of New Jersey, which has one.

End detail

Underside detail
Interior detail

With the onset of World War I, the United States Railroad Administration (USRA) was faced with the possible shortage of raw materials to construct desperately-needed rolling stock. In an effort to decrease construction time, provide a cost savings and simplify repair and parts supply, a group of seven standard freight car designs were created that could be built in large quantities. Over 20,000 composite gondolas were constructed during the war time.
 

Features Include:

  • All metal grab irons
  • Die-cast Andrews-style trucks
  • Die-cast chassis
  • Fully-detailed inside and out
  • Accurate painting and lettering
  • Minimum diameter curve: O-31 (3-Rail)
  • Minimum radius curve: 24" (2-Rail)

Four road numbers are available per road name.
