The smoke unit on/ off switch is under or near the truck on the bottom of the engine? That seems odd.
Does anyone know when Atlas will post a catalog? Their current link is down and we are almost a month into the six month cycle.
Thats probably anybodys guess, like their website which appears to get updated erraticaly from time to time, the Tman bay window caboose has been shipping since Oct 16 under New Arrivals, A to Z shipping schedule could use a good update also.JMO
Yes George all the switches for the engine is underneath front truck on the frame.
I think the 2016 All Scales Catalog (January-June) comes out this weekend at the Amherst Train Show. Of course, the January announcement has already been made.
You are probably right on that I had forgotten that Atlas has a booth at that show, I have been to that show twice and it is a really excellent all around train show unfortunately at nearly 5 hrs each way it is not worth it any more for me.Just saying.
Basically, Atlas shipped us all of the 3 Rail engines they had left - they are sold out..... we are still offering these at our pre-order discount plus free shipping.
I still have a few extras of these in stock.
- Both numbers C&O
- Both numbers PC
- Both numbers Chessie
- Both numbers Reading and Northern
- One WP - #2258
I have been able to get some additional 2 rail units. They're selling at $225 plus shipping. Let me know if you want a 2 Rail and I will try to get you one!
Any photos of these models as delivered? Any reviews? Thanks
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 after 3 years in the works.
