Atlas Model Railroad Co., Inc. This engine looks great and it passed the test run - runs fine forward and in reverse and the lights work as expected in both directions. However, this engine was placed on top of the tissue paper in the box and I detect a little wheel wear so I assume this has been run.
Well over 1,300 RS-3 road-switcher locomotives were built by ALCO between 1950 and 1956. It can be considered one of the most successful four-axle diesel road-switchers ever produced by the builder. These 1,600hp locomotives were powered by an ALCO 244 V-12 engine which was complimented by rugged GE electrical components. The RS-3 was truly a versatile locomotive. It could be found in virtually every type of service from passenger and commuter runs to heavy-haul and local freight assignments. Original owners of the RS-3 tended to be in the eastern and central regions of the US (with heavier concentrations in the northeast and southeast).
