There is no roadbed track that can match up to the scale-model quality and versatility of Atlas’ True-Track. It is easy to assemble and affordably priced, but do not mistake True-Track for a toy. It is a true hobby track system, created for the novice modeler looking not only for realistic appearance but unparalleled performance in a ready-to-run roadbed track. True-Track features Atlas’ world renowned Snap-Track, that has been setting the standard for HO track for over 40 years. The piece of Snap-Track can be removed and used separately if desired. Features include: true-to-prototype gray, graveled roadbed; Code 83 brown ties and nickel silver rail and correctly angled roadbed shoulder. 4 Pieces.
Designed with precision and sophisticated technology, Atlas N Scale Code 55 Track offers reliability while being more prototypical. N Scale Code 55 has finer brown ties and nickel silver rail. 6 Pieces.

The airslide covered hopper was introduced by General American Transportation Corporation (GATX) in 1953. Approx. 5000 of the 2600 cu. ft. cars were built between that year and 1969.
The airslide is primarily designed for the bulk shipment of dry, granular or powdered commodities. The design of that car is such that it can be loaded and unloaded quickly and with little spillage through the use of air pressure. The most common commodities carried include flour, sugar and starch.

In 2006, answering increased demand by discriminating modelers, Atlas is introducing its N Scale Signal Systems, offered in three versions, each complete with a signal relay shed for static display. The signals will be offered as a single target, double target, bi-directional targets and single targets in a four pack. The Atlas Model RR Signal System features true scale dimensions and details, and includes circuitry for North American prototype operation. These signals can be used as a stand-alone accessory, or connected to one another for complete dynamic integration.

Built by American Car & Foundry in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the 60’ Auto Parts Box Cars serviced assembly plants and component suppliers across the nation. The cars were equipped with either single or double doors, offering easy access to the freight inside, serving the auto industry well with their versatility. Many of these cars can still be found in service today throughout North America.
Powered by a V12 FDL prime mover, the 2250 h.p. U23B was GE’s intermediate-sized four-axle road-switcher of the late 1960s through the mid 1970s. The U23B’s direct competitor during this period was the very successful EMD GP38. In 10 years of production from 1968 through 1977 a total of 481 units were produced, making this the second best seller of GE’s “Universal Series” locomotives. The first units were delivered to the Delaware & Hudson in August and September 1968. CSX predecessors Chesapeake & Ohio and Louisville & Nashville had a combined fleet of 120 units, giving CSX one of the larger active fleets in later years. Penn Central, Santa Fe and Missouri Pacific also purchased sizeable fleets of U23Bs.
Primary spotting features include a stepped-out radiator section and two sets of three tall engine access doors near the center of the long hood. During production, the U23B was equipped with various truck side frames, including Blomberg trucks from EMD trade-in locomotives, AAR-style trucks, or GE’s own four-axle “FB2” truck. One of these three truck styles is included on our model where appropriate per road name.
Today the number of active U23B’s has dwindled, but a handful can still be found working for short lines and regional railroads in North America.
Atlas’ high quality N Scale locomotive is modeled after Electro Motive Division’s 2000 horsepower GP-38 diesel introduced in the late 1960s and built through the early 1970s and is still in service today throughout North America. The GP-38 is usually identified by its two radiator fans located on top of the long hood and two small exhaust stacks.
The GP-40 was produced the Electro Motive Division in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the GP-40 was a 3000 horsepower locomotive best characterized by the three full size radiator fans on the rear of the roof.
The GP40-2 was the successor to the popular EMD GP-40. The GP-40-2 had mostly internal changes but several outside details varied as well. Such details include bolted down battery box covers and a roof that extends slightly beyond the rear of the cab.
