Atlas® C424 Phase 2 (GOLD) Locomotive - Erie Lackawanna #2407 - HO Scale


Alco introduced the Century 424 four-axle, 2,400 hp (1,790 kW) diesel-electric road switcher type locomotive in 1963. Built between April 1963 and May 1967, the C424 was intended to replace the earlier RS-27 model and offered as a lower-priced alternative to the C425.

Atlas's HO Scale version features:

  • C425 Phase 2 models include cab with either horizontal or vertical headlights per the prototype


  • Models include redesigned "AAR" style truck side frames with separate brake cylinders and separate bearing cap detail (included when appropriate per the prototype).


  • Directional lighting w/ golden-white LEDs


  • Five-pole skewed armature motor with dual flywheels for optimum performance at all speeds


  • Factory-equipped with AccuMate® knuckle couplers


  • Analog version features NMRA 8 pin plug for DCC


  • Separately-applied wire grab irons, ladders, and drop steps


  • Separately-applied marker lenses


  • Improved painting and printing w/painted handrails


  • Two painted crew members


  • Gold Series Sound Features:

    DCC Operation

  • Supports all DCC-programming modes


  • Flexible mapping of function keys F0 to F28.


  • A total of six DCC function outputs are available


  • Follows all NMRA DCC standards and recommended practices.


  • Analog (DC) Operation

  • 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 Atlas Gold Series C424/425 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 (such as the Atlas Gold Series C424/425) 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.)


  • Sound Functionality

  • Over 20 sound effects are available, including engine start-up and shutdown, prime mover sounds through all eight notches, bell, air horn, air compressor, dynamic brakes and more.


  • There are 16 user-selectable horns, 2 user-selectable bells, and 2 user-selectable synchronized brake squeals.


  • Manual and Automatic Notching modes with the ability to change modes "on the fly" are provided for true realism.
