"The new Trainman series locomotive is definitely good news for the O-gauge hobby. First, it provides 2-rail and 3-rail operators with affordable motive power that is compatible with scale NMRA DCC or TMCC command control systems. Second, the RSD-4/5’s highquality decoration and crisply molded details allow it to fit in, almost undetected, with other higher priced O-scale models. Finally, it allows new blood to enter our hobby with minimal investment, but with maximum 1/48-scale play value."
-David Otte, Model Railroad News, August 2006

The Alco RSD 4/5 locomotive was a six motor version of the popular RS 3 road switcher. Designed as heavy freight haulers, they were often found in mountainous territory, or used in coal-hauling services. Ours is a truly exquisite reproduction of the original.

To create these smooth-running, scale replicas, Atlas’ prototype pros have combined handsome new paint schemes with state-of-the-art detailing and construction. From their etched metal fan grill to their separately applied wire grab-irons and more, these locomotives will impressively lead your rolling stock around your layout!

Matching cabooses available separately.
