Just received my AB Atlas F3 phase II Burlington units.  

The b unit derails each time as it enters the O54 curve.  It looks like the ladders that hang down hinder the swing of the truck.  Spec says O45 for B unit  

Haven’t removed ladders yet but curious if anyone else has had that issue?

Just sent in a query to Atlas but thought I would post here also. 

Regards

Hey JJWyatt...I seem to remember the ladders were a minor issue and this was mentioned ( and a remedy written about with pics) in an older OGR magazine article.  Me thinks this article was about 2 to 3 years ago.  Not much help, but there is an easy remedy...hang in there!

 

Thanks for the reply.  I removed the ladders and it makes the turn now. Actually Atlas called today to offer alternative parts.  

This was my first Atlas engine and experience with their customer service.   Have to say impressed with their customer support and like the details on their product. Good experience 

Regards
