    Hey guys , I have been a little busy with my web site settup , and maybe I missed a thead on this.
    What is your opinion of the new Atlas locos.
    Judging by my GP35's and SD24's I think they are doing a tremendous job on running and detail.
    Any other comments???
    How do they do those great handrails , paint or 2 color molding??
    I am not brave enough to bend one and find out.

    I think they are great.As for the handrails ,Paul Graf stated that someone in the Chinese factory figured out a way to paint them and keep the paint on the handrails (this was the Chinese factory's own idea).

    They then asked ATLAS if they would be interested in the factory doing this.Paul said that ATLAS said YES!!! and the rest is history .:D
