Has any one got a model of an RS1???????
I would like to see it and who makes it.
I think Atlas makes one, I don't have it but would expect it to run very well. As I recall, the hand grabs on the corners aren't correct. I may be thinking of the RS3.
There is an artical on the RS 1 in the April issue of RailRoad Moldel Craftsman.
I rather like the look of the old girl .
Got to get me one I think.
I just check the Atlas on line catalog.
The do a RS 3
got ta find one.
Chris, I checked the Atlas site myself, they make both the RS1 and the RS3. BTW, Kato makes the RS2. The 2 and 3 look very similar, the 1 is a bit different.
Thanks Gary I did not see the RS 1 Thanks.
What does an RS1 look like? And a RS3 for that matter?
Kinda homely little monkeys. When Chris sobers up he'll want a beautiful S-1, yet another Alco:
Chris, they have a hell of a deal on the S-1's, proto 2k's at trainworld.com, under 30 American pesos.
OK Chris, if you still want an RS-1 after all that unwarranted bantering, here it is, atlas makes an RS-1, 2, 3 and 11. This is a trainworld ad, but the number is standard walthers number if you want to order it elsewhere.
and if you decide to go with an S-1, the magazine ad does not show the good price, but the website shows: 23719 PROTO 2000 ALCO S-1 STARTING @ 26.99EA. which is the price I got.
WOW and WOW again
Hi Jon thanks friend for all those pics yep I am a drooling or to put it in terms of a friend getting moist
Will See what my LHS can do for me first but thanks for the link.
Will check it out tonight.
What is this RS????????
Shucks it`s to dark will take a pic with the digit later
Chris, The 6 wheeled truck version of the RS units were RSD's. Not sure if RSD4 or 5. Also don't know if any of the better mfgs made this loco. I think AHM did. Do you know the make of this one?
Here is a few shots , All I can find is "Made in Japan" underneath
Runs well thou
Another RSD ??
Can we give it a full name??
You can still find the Atlas RS1..It is a sweet runner.Shop around on the net for the best buy.
what you have there is an Atlas Model Railroad's model of an Alco RSD-5. It was built for them by Kato, (if my memory is correct). What is an RSD-5 you say, it was the six axle version of the RS-3.
Here is a photo of one that I found on Jerry Appleman's web site http://www.jerryapp.com/rr_album.html
I've got a pair of the Atlas RS1s, and love 'em. I still have to add the steam generators, but otherwise they're perfect.
