AN INTRODUCTION TO ATLAS’ NEW & IMPROVED SIGNAL SYSTEM
Modern railroads rely on an integrated network of coordinated rules and equipment to move freight and passengers across the country in a timely and safe manner. The most visible aspect of this system to most people is the railroad signal. Located simply by itself along a lonely stretch of single-track mainline, or in concert with many others stretching high above a number of tracks and turnouts near a passenger station or in a freight yard, signals convey important information to train crews regarding what to expect up ahead, and what to do in order to keep their consist moving down the line.
At Atlas, we strive to incorporate the reality of the prototype into your scale modeling experience, and signals are no exception. Our newly designed All Scales Signal System enables you to provide realistic information to your model crews – and your full-scale operators – in a simple yet expandable way. Our growing line of signal heads, masts, and bridges spans most popular modeling eras, and individual signals are easy to attach with standardized plug-and-play connectors, regardless of your modeling scale.
At the center of the new system is our Universal Signal Control Board - item # 70 000 046, which in addition to now supporting both common anode or common cathode signals, gives you the capability of modeling a variety of different prototypical scenarios, see features above.
From basic layouts to large club empires, the All Scales Signal System opens the gateway to enhanced prototypical operation and realism and ensure that “You’re on the Right Track...with Atlas!®”
