Welcome to the fun and rewarding family hobby of model railroading and the company that is working everyday to keep it that way.
Begun in the 1920's by Stephan Schaffan Sr. as the Atlas Tool and Die Company, Atlas has a proud tradition as a family owned business with a reputation for quality and innovation. From it's modest beginnings as a tool and general machine shop, Atlas has become a leader in the worldwide model railroad industry, specializing in HO, N and 0 scale model railroad products.
In the 1930's, Stephan Schaffan Jr. joined the business and started to create the machines and processes that popularized model railroading. One of "Steve's" first projects was to develop a fixture to solder switches together. This eventually led to the production of a rail joiner. Steve went on to develop and patent such innovations as FLEX-TRACKand SNAP-TRACK. His was one of the first companies to mass produce HO track products, the most widely used scale in model railroading today.
In 1990, Atlas changed it's name to Atlas Model Railroad Co. Inc. to more clearly identify our products and goals to the general public.
A major goal of Atlas is to make the hobby easy to understand and layouts simple to build. The book you are now reading is an excellent example of this goal. It is divided into three main sections, (track, electrical and layouts) that allow you to quickly grasp the basics and select the specific products to help you get the job done.
One suggestion in your approach to this book is to read the glossary first. As in most other fields, model railroading has its buzz words that must be understood before proceeding. We urge you to read Sections 1, 2 & 4 completely before selecting your layout in Section 3.
As we approach the next century, Atlas pledges to continue to produce the high quality products and services that our customers expect and deserve. Happy Railroading!
