Atlas has announced Bombardier ALP45DP locomotives with matching bi-level passenger cars at Trainfest 2017. The ALP45DP is a dual-mode locomotive with both electric and diesel power plants. New Jersey Transit ordered 35 units in addition to 329 bi-level passenger cars.
The model will be offered in both Silver (non-sound) and Gold (ESU equipped sound). Sounds units feature over 20 sound effects. The model features bi-directional lighting, blackened wheel sets, painted handrails and Accumate couplers.
The Atlas flyer follows as well as a few photos of the first sample units. No word on availability yet, but we’ll know more in the next few days.
