Default New Atlas HO C40-8

Anybody seen the new C40-8 by Atlas? Here it is: http://www.atlasrr.com/highlights/hodash840c.asp. Nice, huh I would have to assume that later in the future they will also come out with a wide-cab version and possibly come out with N Scale versions too. Just thought you modelers out there would like to know!

Yes, Atlas, LLP2K, Kato, and Athearn have been coming out with alot of really nice stuff lately. Just bought a new GP60 in Norfolk Southern paint from LLP2K today and I'll I can say is that thing looks as good as brass and runs even better!

I agree.. I've got two of the LL Proto 2000 SD50 EMD Demonstrators (and these are from a couple of years ago), and they look fabulous!

Does anyone know some websites with pics of great model RR layouts?

If I had a few extra thousand dollars a month... and about 3 extra days a week... and a full size basement... that's a hobby I'd start.

ICE, the most popular scale by far is HO, then the next popular would be N, then O scale.

Gregory, here are some nice sites with some good photos:

I model N scale so it can be hard to find a good engine (Kato's run the best, but they seem to lack detail). Atlas engines are probably the best, they have great detail and a pretty good motor. Life Like N Scale engines aren't DCC ready (Duh, everyone makes DCC ready N Scale units these days).

I really think N scale has come a long way, alot of there stuff is very nice, it really think its pretty easy to find good looking N scale. Kato makes some of the best, but intermountain and atlas are really good to.

Here is my clubs website, there are some cool photos and model railroad videos on it. For photos click the photos tab and for the videos go into the links section. Its an N scale Club.

A friend of mine was looking around the net for a Large scale model of a NS C40-9CW and ran across some amazing stuff from Aristocrat trains. They have a G Scale C40-9CW that has some amazing detail...I didnt realize that the big stuff had come so far, they always looked like toys to me before. The kicker to that model....it includes a smoke generator built in to the engine! For a GE, they thought of everything!!
