History

Atlas has been a player in the hobby since their founding by Stephan Schaffan, Sr., in 1924. The company, originally Atlas Tool Company, became the lifelong pursuit of Stephan Schaffan, Jr., in the early 1930s. Most famously, Atlas goes down in hobby history for its track products and related releases. The full line of Atlas models that we all know and appreciate today is something that began in the 1960s with a new line of structure kits for HO scale. Many of these are today considered classics, such as the Hillside Lumber Co., the Passenger Depot, and Signal Tower. The move into locomotives and rolling stock began in the late 1960s in N scale, followed in the early 1970s with some O scale offerings. Atlas sourced its 1:160 line from a variety of manufacturers, including Mehano, Rivarossi, and Roco. In the early 1970s, Roco returned once again to supply the limited O scale offerings. In late 1974, Atlas expanded into the world of HO scale locomotives with the arrival of an Electro-Motive Division (EMD) SD24, produced by Roco of Austria. Atlas introduced an Alco RS-3 in N scale in 1983 made by Tokyo-based Kato Precision Railroad Models.
