What’s For Sale

Historic Gold Mining Trains For Sale

The Atlas K locomotives, pulling 7 loaded cars each, have handled the uphill 3-7% grades on our line very well. We’ve been told by a Disneyland Railroad engineer who rode on our train tours that the Disneyland RR locomotives could not make the grades the Atlas K’s do without a run at it. (We recommend building grades less than 3%.)

The Atlas K locomotives are substantial, powerful, fun, easy to operate and maintain.
