Atlas Trainman Plus Genset Locomotives

If you missed the first run, Atlas has announced another run of the Genset locos for delivery in late August/2011 under the Trainman Plus brand. They are doing 3 new paint schemes and are running 3 new numbers in each UP, CSX and BNSF models.

The NRE Genset was introduced in 2006 to reduce emissions and fuel consumption on road-switcher type locomotives. The power comes from 2-3 smaller independent diesels (producing 700 hp each) used as tractive effort is needed. Over 170 have been built to date.
