Planned Delivery Q4 2024



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 GOLD version. Sound & DCC, and is deposit only. The balance will be paid prior to delivery and total cost of this DCC version is $249.

Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!


I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.

I got my new Santa Fe business cars, they are superb and worth the wait ten times over.


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

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…


You know I’m always looking forward to the next release and its arrival with great anticipation. I treasure my Lowell Smith Signature collection.

BRAVO to you and Barbara for…
