You will also find Atlas’ ALP-45D locomotive sold in a collector-series set with multi-level cab car and trailer, and Atlas will offer a 3-pack of multi-level cars (in HO and N) with a cab car, trailer, and trailer with restroom. All these passenger car models will feature the manufacturer’s anniversary decoration.

Also coming in this production, Atlas will offer New Jersey Transit paint schemes that have not previously been produced for these HO and N locomotives. NJT’s “First Responders” and “Rail Operations Anniversary” locomotives are coming in this new production. The ALP-45DP will also be offered in Exo-patch scheme, as will the line’s multi-level passenger cars.

You can see all these announcements by downloading a copy of the Atlas 100th Anniversary Commuter Train Catalog (cover shown above) available on the manufacturer’s website. These are limited-production models in both HO and N scales. Check with your hobby dealer about reserving yours.
