Announcing an extremely limited run of custom decorated PTRR/ NPTCo. Alco S-2’s

Atlas has been commissioned to decorate their N Scale S-2 for the Portland Terminal Railroad / Northern Pacific Terminal Company. This is the first time, and sure to be the ONLY time that these beautiful switchers will be offered. ‘One and done’ as they say.

Production on this release is limited and divided to five road numbers, each with its own unique safety slogan panel. Choose from SILVER which is standard DC version or the GOLD version which comes with DCC & Sound. I love the sound and ‘chug’ of the Alco motors.

  • Atlas Master® Gold version features ESU LokSound Decoder

Each engine has a unique safety slogan plate that is attached to the handrail of the walkway (both sides).  The circle logo reads ‘Portland Terminal Railroad Company’ while the side of the engine shows ‘NPTCo’, making these more universal to the era you are modeling.

Please remember they are extremely limited and the quantity has already been set at the factory.  Due to the nature of these engines and this railroad, this current reservation price is an introductory price. When we reach the halfway point to sell-out, or any that might remain when released, will be at a higher (typical) pricing.

This selection is for the SILVER version. ANALOG DC, and is deposit only. The balance will be paid prior to delivery and total cost of this ANALOG version is $132. Later reservations, the cost will increase to $148+ after first half are reserved.

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.


Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…


Thank you ever so much for being such an integral part of the model railroading hobby!


I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

Lowell, I am very pleased with the N Scale Ferdinand Magellan Presidential car. As a retired US Secret Service agent I have conducted security advances for the president and his family traveling by train. I have done a lot of research on the Ferdinand Magellan and the model has excellent detail. It will be an…
