70's Atlas Rail Cars / kits

RandyR ·
I hope I'm in the right spot. I'm still kind of new to this forum. In the last couple months there have been a boatload of 70's era Atlas O scale RTR and Kit cars hit eBay. I'm also somewhat of a newbie at model railroading and my knowledge base is a little shallow. From what I can gather, the aforementioned RTR's and kits seem to represent 40' single door boxcars and plug-door steel reefers from about the 50's era but I'm not convinced they're prototypical. Is there anyone out there that...

072 PASSENGER CARS WITH 054 OR 060 SWITCHES

Keith Buenzow ·
Does anyone have experience running cars requiring 072 curves running through 060 or 054 switches? Im curious and thinking that the short distance of the curve in the switch may not affect the overall tracking of the longer cars. If a 072 is immediately connected after the switch, than that would compensate for it. I have the atlas CZ cars and have a video on youtube demonstrating them on 072 vs 063 on atlas track. But this is over multiple sections (3 or 4). Am i allows to link to youtube...

Atlas turntable power

Porsche1662 ·
Hi Guys, working on my turntable this weekend. I have 14 lines coming off. Im trying to figure the best way to power each line.  Do I need to run a separate line to the port terminal block for every one or can I wire two terminal strip close to the turntable then one line to PTB ?  If I can should I use a heavier ga wire from each TS to the PTB ?  Or do you recommend a separate transformer for this? layout is 9x22 with 3 loops and the turntable...

Atlas O-72 Wye shoe ramp or not

Oman ·
I recently purchased a, supposedly new, Atlas O-72 Wye turnout 6074 through eBay. It does not have the ramp for Lionel sliding shoes. Is this correct or is my purchase incomplete? The instruction sheet states that the turnout comes with the ramp, but Atlas probably wouldn't bother to print a different copy even if it didn't come with the ramp.

Atlas O Switch Failures

heiliner ·
I have just had an Atlas O 054 left-hand switch fail. It's not the electro magnet (switch machine) but the underside embedded wiring that transfers power on down the track. They seem to fatigue over time and break. The worst part it is in a blocked switching yard area meaning a lot of track has to be lifted. Has anyone had much luck powering the dead track with another set of power shoes and leaving the broken Atlas O switch in place? OR do I just bite the bullet and find another Atlas O 054...

Atlas is not making switches or much anything for Industrial line.

Colonial village ·
Since I'm new....This may be OLD news. I have read some posts and was hoping it wasn't true. I just tried to order some switches and received an email. Atlas has no intention of making any. Therefore, if I'm going to continue in this, I'm going to have to change track. Fortunately, all I have is a small oval.

Fixed Pilot and Scale Coupler installed on FM Erie Built

Steven Michael ·
I just finished installing a scale coupler and fix pilot on my Atlas O Erie Built. Yesterday I put on the included pilot as it came with the cover over the coupler hole, but I realized it stuck out way too far, and we run them in freight service so it shouldn't be on there anyway. Today my dad ran up to the hobby store and got a pack of Kadees to put on it. I removed the screw that holds the cover onto the pilot. I then built up the mounting pad with three sheets of styrene, not sure how...

I usually grab one from my parts bin. When I convert cars to Kadees I save all those air hoses. I like the MTH air hoses because they are much thinner and have a nicer glad hand than the Atlas part. I also use PSC air hoses and glad hands with real rubber hose... but usually its the MTH air hose.
