MAJESTY IN MOTION: Atlas O’s much anticipated F7 diesels have arrived, and these are some of the most striking locomotives to ride the three-rails. The O gauge models have two can-style motors, a die-cast metal chassis, and a smoke unit. A-units include a scale pilot and operate on O-36 or wider-diameter track. B units require O-45 or wider-diameter track. The Lionel TrainMaster-equipped models are compatible with Lionel’s Legacy command-control system and have cruise commander speed control from the Electric Railroad Co. Current run road names include Amtrak, Erie-Lackawanna, Milwaukee Road, Pennsylvania RR, Rio Grande, and Santa Fe (shown left). Undecorated units are also available. Powered units cost $499.95, while unpowered units sell for $219.95. See your Atlas O retailer or go to www.atlaso.com for more information.
