Atlas acquires HO, N tooling from True Line Trains

Atlas Model Railroad Co. announced that it purchased certain molds and tooling from True Line Trains.

Among the HO tooling acquired include Fairbanks-Morse C-Liner and Montreal Locomotive Works RS-18 diesel locomotives, slab-side covered hopper, 50-foot newsprint boxcar, Fowler stockcar, bulkhead flatcar, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific cabooses, and Association of American Railroads 40-foot boxcar.

In N scale, Atlas acquired the Alco C-424 and Electro-Motive Division GP9 diesel locomotives.

“True Line Trains made some great models over the years that we are excited to now produce under the Atlas name,” said Paul Graf, CEO of Atlas, in a press release. “They will fit right in with the other high quality model railroad products we make in HO and N scale.” The first model to be released is the HO scale slab-side covered hopper, scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2021.
