2016 Exclusive Offers: Atlas Extended Vision Caboose - TTX Caboose 100
Most cabooses saw service on the hind end of freight trains up until the late 80s. Their main purpose was to provide shelter for crew members watching the rear of the train and performing switching or backup moves. By the early 1980’s most of these cabooses were either relegated to local service or sidelined, for good. A handful of cabooses would continue on in local service, museums, or tourist lines, but there was one unique caboose that stood out from the rest. TTX Caboose 100, which was originally built in 1972 for the Illinois Central, at their Centralia, Il car shop. The IC retrofitted the caboose with equipment to monitor their locomotives, before selling it to the Trailer Train Corporation (TTX) in the late 80s. It now serves as a research and test car for TTX to gather data on new cars at the Transportation Technology Center in Pueblo, Colorado, but also will roam around the country testing new cars in service. The TTX 100 would look right at home bringing up the rear of any intermodel train on your layout.

Golden Spike Club Limited Edition
California Zephyr CB&Q Passenger Car Set
Beautiful. Stunning. Elegant. These are all words to describe one of the most beautiful ladies around—The Silver Lady, also known as the California Zephyr. Atlas has offered the cars for individual sale over the past few years and they were well-received to great acclaim. Now, for the first time ever, Atlas is offering a complete set of the CZ train for collectors and modelers alike to enjoy.
To commemorate this special event, we are offering a special version of the train just for members of the Atlas Golden Spike Club in the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy road name. Also exclusive to the GSC sets is a commemorative, numbered metal certificate. This set features a unique car and road names that won’t be available to non-members.
The Unique Car...
The 10-6 Sleeper Car “Silver Rapids” was built in 1948 and put into service on the California Zephyr to help the Pennsylvania Railroad fulfill transcontinental travel to its passengers without the need to disembark. Upon reaching Chicago in when going either East or West, the car would be switched from the California Zephyr to a Pennsylvania Railroad train and vice versa. In the midsixties, when transcontinental service on the CZ was stopped, the “Silver Rapids” entered into service with the PRR and gained Keystone heralds and its roof was repainted black. Amtrak acquired the car in 1971 and retired it from service in 1980. Since 2000, it has been run in charter service where it continues to run to this day.
The car we’ve included in the Golden Spike Club set is the original, silver-roofed version of the “Silver Rapids.” This car is exclusive to this particular set and is a real showpiece for anyone looking to own a complete California Zephyr train.
As an added benefit, we are including a free year of 2017 primary membership to the Golden Spike Club to all members who buy the set.
This set is for GSC members only but it's easy to join. Apply online here!

2016 Exclusive Offers - O Master Trinity 5161 Covered Hopper -BNSF Heritage Paint Schemes
The Atlas Golden Spike Club is proud to introduce four O Scale BNSF Heritage Master Line 5161 covered hoppers and all are available in two road numbers. BNSF has informed Atlas that as part of their ongoing efforts to preserve and protect the trademarks of a number of predecessor railroads, they have applied these predecessor railroad logos to several dozen railcars operating in interstate service. The cars have become known by the rail community as the BNSF Heritage Fleet. These are not fantasy cars or paint schemes but actual prototypes that are currently in service earning their keep.
