I have about 25 of the early Atlas cars.  They did form the basis of some of the early trainman tooling.  I like the light weight as I can pull lots of them and when spaced correctly near the end of the train on broad curves they don't stringline.  They can found for so little.  Granted the graphics are obsolete and the couplers are funky, but they still can fill out a long freight train pretty well. 

It was an odd line as the locomotives, F9s, C-liners, and industrial switchers were DC two rail with scalish flanges, yet the cars had a deeper flange more suggestive of what you might see on a 3 rail car. 

I also find the track from that era appealing as it something like code 125 vs. the new atlas code 148 2 rail track.

I believe that the C-Liners were made by Rivarossi for AHM.
