Modern Commuter Train

What makes commuter operations unique in the world of railroading? Is it the daily interaction between railroads and the general public,
or the ever-changing landscape of purpose-built rail equipment? Perhaps it is the visual aspect of the experience, with the sleek, modern
locomotive and gleaming stainless steel passenger cars gliding effortlessly into station stops mere minutes apart.
Here at Atlas, we have always thrived on being able to replicate the most unique and outstanding features of the railroad industry in
miniature. In pursuit of those qualities, we do not need to stray far from our home state of New Jersey, where NJ TRANSIT Rail Operations
has remained at the forefront of commuter rail development for many decades. The NJ TRANSIT U34CH locomotives and Comet I
coaches, developed simultaneously in 1970, marked the first time in American history that a locomotive and cars had been specifically
designed to operate together as a commuter trainset. Forty-two years later, NJ TRANSIT repeated this winning combination with the
development of the ALP-45DP locomotive and multi-level coaches. Like our highly acclaimed HO scale models, you will find our newly-
tooled N scale ALP-45DP locomotive and multi-level coaches to be faithful reproductions of their 1:1 scale counterparts. We encourage
you to see and experience for yourself the operation of these outstanding models, which represent the finest in today’s model railroading
quality and technology.


ALP-45DP Locomotive-Prototype Information

The ALP-45DP is a “dual mode” locomotive, capable of drawing power from either overhead electrical wires or its own pair of
12-cylinder Caterpillar diesel engines. These flexible locomotives were designed to provide a one-seat commute from NJ TRANSIT’s
various diesel-only lines into the electrified territory that leads to New York City’s Penn Station. This fulfills the requirement of not operating
diesels through the North River Tunnels and within the subterranean Penn Station complex. Produced by Bombardier Transportation
in Kassel, Germany, the first ALP-45DP locomotive entered service on NJ TRANSIT on May 30, 2012. NJ TRANSIT’s 35 ALP-45DP
locomotives are commonly seen on commuter trains traversing the Morristown Line, Montclair-Boonton Line, Raritan Valley Line, and
North Jersey Coast Line. These lines do not have overhead electrical wires for their entire length, necessitating a change of power
source somewhere en route. Previously, locomotives or entire trainsets would have to be changed, inconveniencing riders. The ALP-45DP
alleviates this need, performing the switch from diesel to electric power (or vice versa) in just under two minutes during a routine station
stop.


Multi-Level Cab Car-Prototype Information

Concurrent with its purchase of ALP-45DP locomotives, NJ TRANSIT also purchased 62 multi-level cab cars from Bombardier
Transportation. These cab cars are used on the opposite end of the train from the ALP-45DP locomotive to facilitate “push-pull” operations,
where the engineer in the cab car can control the locomotive pushing from the other end of the train. A cab car provides an engineer
with all of the same controls as a locomotive cab, allowing the train to reverse direction without turning around. Cab cars also include all
standard locomotive safety features, such as a horn and bell.
The multi-levels’ fixed 2-2 seating arrangement provides ample legroom and maximizes passenger comfort while increasing capacity. All
of NJ TRANSIT’s cab cars also include toilets. NJ TRANSIT’s multi-level cab cars have a capacity of 127 commuters (approximately 17%
more than its single-level counterpart, the Comet V). These cars routinely operate over most routes on both the Hoboken and Newark
Divisions of NJ TRANSIT, carrying more than 300,000 commuters daily to and from destinations all over New Jersey and into New York’s
busy Penn Station.


Multi-Level Trailers-Prototype Information

In addition to its multi-level cab cars, NJ TRANSIT operates an additional 367 multi-level trailer coaches without cabs. Ninety-nine of these
cars include a toilet and have a passenger seating capacity of 132 commuters. The remaining 268 trailer cars do not have a toilet, and
feature seating for 142 passengers. The multi-level trailer cars are always operated in matching sets (with a multi-level cab car on one end
and a locomotive on the other), and these cars carry commuters over 2.2 billion milesevery yea
