Description:

Road Number: #7801

Between 1964 and 1966, EMD built a total of 360 six-axle 2,500hp SD35 locomotives. An additional 35 steam generator-equipped SDP35 locomotives were also built during this period. These were all part of EMD's "35-Series" which also featured the four-axle, 2,500hp GP35 locomotive. All locomotives included the standard EMD 567-series prime mover. A stock model weighed 360,000 pounds, but many roads chose to add weight to increase the locomotive's tractive effort. From the mid-1960s through the 1980s, the SD-35 could be found in road service on both large and mid-sized roads across the US. Today the number of active units has dwindled to a select few, including those operated by regional railroad Montana Rail Link.

Atlas' model incorporates many of the subtle details that differentiated the various SD-35 production phases. This includes the detail of the engine air intake, dust bin, radiator screens, radiator fans, fuel tanks and battery boxes. Other options include a low vs. high nose, and a low nose with our without a standard-style headlight.

The LokSound Select Dual-Mode decoder allows your Atlas Gold Series locomotive to be used on DC as well as on DCC layouts

Please note that the Atlas Quantum Engineer will NOT operate an Atlas Gold Series locomotive equipped with a LokSound Select decoder on an analog (DC) layout. However, the sound and lighting functions of the LokSound Select decoder in the locomotive can be controlled by an easy-to-use basic DCC system

Also note that on a DC-powered layout, a DCC and sound equipped locomotive CANNOT be consisted with another locomotive that does not also have both DCC and sound. (This statement does NOT apply to DCC-equipped locomotives operating on a DCC layout.)

Proto Type info

TORCO (Toledo Ore Railroad Company)  was a C+O subsidiary that continued on to Chessie System and CSX.  In 1982 three Chessie System SD-35's were sold to the subsidiary and renumber to 7800,7801, and 7802.
