I understand this will be the first O gauge diesel of the revered Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway and many here in Music City, USA are eagerly awaiting this release!

If Atlas follows through with the production of the NC&StL VO1000, it will be my first Atlas locomotive.
My layout is limited to L&N and NC&StL during the early 1950's. I had the NC&StL #710 custom painted from a Legacy GP7.
Good news, this is a new, O GUAGE offering from Atlas O. It is in the new items in their site. It can be ordered in two numbers, 30 or 33. It's Tuscan colored and has a nice yellow stripe. I just talked to Mr. Muffins and he said he will have pricing in June. I imagine it will be shown at the Atlas O booth at YORK...Wow..

When did Atlas announce the VO-1000 in O? I know they make it in N scale Is this an import from Weaver?
It was announced in their catalog handed out at Amherst. Yes this is the former Weaver Models unit. Note that Atlas O has announced the former Weaver RS11 in the Trainman line too!
Funny, I asked the Question to Jerry at Amherst why the Vo1000 is a Master Line and the RS11 is in the Trainman line? Answer was the Separately applied handrails on the Vo1000 made it a Master line loco.
LL: Casey at Phillips plans to stock these on preorders.
Pricing in June.
It will be worth it!
