This is a very nice RS-4/5 unit. A little lighter than I expected...but nice. :thumb:
Cool. Nice Addition to the collection. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Sweet units! I just got two CNJ ones.
You are right about them being light. So far it has not hurt their performance for me.
I tried to get the RS-1 but was outbid at the last minute. I snatched this one for $60.00. Good deal!
Nice loco at a decent price.
Do those have the Kato drive?
My brother has a Kato RSD and it's a nice running loco.
I've always been impressed by the running qualities of Atlas locos. I model the '30's in HO, but every once in a while, I timeshift the era to late '50's just to be able to run my Atlas diesels: I have an S4, RS3, and two RS11's plus some remotored Athearn SW1200RS's. I also have some Model Power FA's and a couple that have been rebuilt into an FPA4/FPB4 pair for passenger trains. The best part is that they all doublehead well with my steam engines, especially the Bachmann 2-8-0's.
