ATLAS YORK TCA OCTOBER EVENT NEWS & GOLDEN SPIKE CLUB UPDATES 

Tom Haedrich , CEO, Atlas Model Railroad Co. and Atlas O, LLC has announced Rob Pisani as Vice President of product development for both Atlas Model and Atlas O. Rob joined Atlas Model ten years ago when he was hired as part of the R & D team, specializing in HO freight cars and locomotives. In making the announcement Tom said, “Rob brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and passion to the position.” Rob previously worked in the rail fleet planning department of Union Carbide / Dow Chemical and was office manager of the ACF Industries eastern region sales office. You’ll have a chance to meet Rob at the upcoming TCA York Meet from October 13 th – 15 th, 2011 through a series of seminars Atlas will host at this event.

Also at the York TCA event Jay Cain of Cain Design Inc., a professional layout builder, will be presenting a seminar on how to build a 3 rail layout with Atlas O 21 st Century Track. Jerry Kimble of Atlas O will also be presenting a seminar on how to ballast Atlas track that will conclude a comprehensive series of informative model railroad classes. All seminars will all be posted on Atlas websites with location, dates and times.

Announcing the 2012 Golden Spike Club Cars featuring a red, white and blue theme:

  • N and HO scale, the Bangor & Aroostook “State of Maine” 40’ 1932 ARA Box Car

  • O scale, the Union Pacific 100 Ton Pullman-Standard 10,000 “New Family Design” Covered Hopper.


Artwork for all will be posted on Atlas websites during the next week.

Updated information for the Atlas Golden Spike Club includes cancellations and delays due to supplier changes and insufficient order quantities.

Special offer cancellations:

  • GP-7 Phase II Master Line Florida East Coast Locomotive

  • Trainman 50’6”ACF Allegheny & West Virginia Box Car


Delayed items:

  • O scale, the O27 Industrial Rail Baker’s Chocolate Tank Car

  • O scale, the 40’West India Fruit & Steamship ACF SD Box Car

  • HO scale, the USRA Steel Rebuilt Frisco Box Car

  • N scale, the USRA Steel Rebuilt Frisco Box Car


Delayed items will be delivered early 2012.
The Golden Spike Club Master Line Agash Refining Corporation 8000 Tank car and the O scale Steel Refrigerator car will ship this year and should be available before the holidays.

I realize that some of you may be disappointed with Golden Spike Club cancellations and delays. All affected current members will be offered a free Primary membership for 2012 with members only having to pay the difference for the deluxe or double play levels. In addition, there will be no price increase for 2012 of the various levels. Of course all Atlas website shopping cart regular orders will continue to offer free ground shipping and handling to GSC members. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and I am happy to announce that all supply glitches have been worked out of our delivery system. I promise you 2012 will be a rewarding and exciting year; so please stay tuned!
