An update from MrMuffin'sTrains

MrMuffin'sTrains ·
We publish a newsletter roughly every week with news for our place, some videos now and then, new product arrivals and occasionally a discount code for special prices on our website, mrmuffinstrains.com This week, we reported: The Atlas O California Zephyr orders are due this week, and we added a discount code on our website, MuffinCAZ to give our customers a better deal than the mandatory minimum advertised price schedule published by Atlas O. I can't advertise the discount, but its...

February Atlas O Announcements - Orders due on SWs today - 2/9/16

MrMuffin'sTrains ·
Atlas O announced the SW diesels again. This time they're offering some road names that are more broadly modeled in hopes that that gets the pre-orders coming in so these will get made. They're also offering 2 road names for most diesels..... In addition, they are announcing 40' Double Door Box Cars and the War Emergency Hoppers including four new road names. As in the past, if you order all four road numbers for one road name in the WE Hoppers, I will rebate you an additional case discount...

Atlas has been saying they'll show up this month for the past five years. Are you truly confident that they actually will? Five years!

Container shipping usually takes between 4-6 weeks to arrive at Atlas in NJ so these should be available right around the beginning of the New Year.

The container shipped on November 22nd, 2015. The earliest they can get the container to New Jersey is December 22nd, 2015. Since so many other items are in this container or batch of containers it would take one or two weeks to distribute all of the locomotives and cars in all scales. Andrew

I know the colors on these preliminary drawings aren't necessarily representative of the final product. Do you have any sense for the paint scheme on the Canadian National? Is it going to be that deep sort of olive green color with the little yellow horizontal band on top, or is it going to be more of a black as shown in the brochure?

If they did this engine as a Master Line I would probably get one. I just ordered a Lionel LEGACY Chessie GP9 from Charles Ro that should arrive in the spring plus I have 2 Lionel LEGACY Chessie SD40's from the 2015 Signature Edition catalog that are supposed to be delivered next month according to the shipping schedule. These 3 engines will do it for my big ticket model train purchases this year and probably the foreseeable future. I'm sure these Trainman U23B's are nice. They should be...

Also just put the battery(I checked the voltage first) in this morning since I am not using TMCC, according to the instructions it mentions to install the battery. I had to move some of the wires out of the way to install the battery and remove the silver bracket and re-install it to get some wires out of the way along with cutting the tie-wrap and installing a new tie-wrap. One small question abut the mounting screws that came in the packaging, do I need to install these again or not? They...

Lee you can if you have TMCC base or legacy base hooked to the MTH TIU. It tells you in the manual you have to use uncoupler track uncouple from the train car no way to open coupler on engine without cab1 and tmcc base etc. and also found something out too the smoke unit turns itself off if runs out of smoke fluid then you add smoke fluid then comes back on and too not sure i think when engines sits idle the smoke turns off to after so long too. Also you don't have to use the screws but...

Also guys take note you can't turn the smoke unit off and on with Lionel Cab1L or Cab2 on the U23B but you can boost smoke unit with 9 key so if you want turn smoke unit off you have turn switch off underneath of front truck.

Chessie, I don't have the TMCC or legacy unit. You say I need to install at least 1 screw back into the bottom of the engine where the shipping screws were? Correct? Lee Fritz

Thanks guys, I just wanted to be sure as it looked like I could leave those screws out. Also I got a temporary track set up this morning and tested a couple of engines, using 042 tubular track. If I like it I may make it the start of my layout as I laid down a sheet of Life-Like mat. Lee Fritz

Chessie, you can't turn the smoke unit off with the remote on a modern-day command-equipped locomotive? Really? Something just doesn't sound right about that! I wonder if this was just a design/engineering oversight, or a really poor intentional decision by the folks at Atlas? And I'm also wondering if the Trainman RS3 I have on pre-order will be built the same way? Thanks for the heads up...and enjoy your new engine! Will you be posting any pics or videos?
