Body Style Information:
With die-cast metal underframes, directional lighting, golden-white LEDs, and detailed cab interiors with painted crew members, the Atlas Model Railroad EMD GP38 diesel locomotives have an array of separately-applied scale detail parts like coupler cut levers, metal grab irons, movable drop steps, multiple-unit hoses, train line hoses, snowplows, and windshield wipers.

Additional user installed parts that are packaged with the models include an electrical cabinet air filter box (ECAFB) and two engine compartment roof vents that were added by numerous railroads (post manufacturer delivery).

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:
The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (often referred to as the Milwaukee Road) (reporting mark MILW), was a Class I railroad that operated in the Midwest and Northwest of the United States from 1847 until 1980, when its Pacific Extension (Montana, Idaho, and Washington) was abandoned following a bankruptcy.

The company went through several official names and faced bankruptcy several times in that period. The railroad no longer exists as a separate entity, but much of its trackage continues to be used by its successor and other roads. The eastern half of the system merged into the Soo Line Railroad on January 1, 1986.
