Body Style Information: With etched metal radiator walkways, fine-scale handrails, see-through step detail on sills, and painted crew members, the Atlas Model Railroad Alco Century 420 diesel locomotives have an array of separately-applied scale detail parts like cab sun shades, coupler cut levers, drop steps, handrails, metal grab irons, multiple-unit hoses, train line hoses, and windshield wipers.

For optimum performance at all speeds, the models are driven by five-pole skewed armature motors, with dual flywheels.

The C420s have directional lighting and golden-white LEDs.

Decoder-Ready, Atlas Master Series Silver models are fitted with an NMRA 8-pin plug for DCC use.

With authentic sounds, Atlas Master Series Gold models are fitted with dual-mode decoders that run on DCC, or traditional DC equipped layouts.



Road/Company Information: Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.
