Atlas Trains was founded in 1924, although it was then called Atlas Tool Company, by Stephan Schaffan Sr. They are based in Newark, NJ, although Schaffan immigrated from Czechoslovakia, where he brought his machine and skills from. He worked with his son, Steve Jr., who created a “switch kit” for railroad modelers that did extremely well. He created Super-Flex®️ Track, Snap-Switches®️, Custom-Line®️ Turnouts, and others.
They now make track, as well as products for HO and N scale model railroading. Atlas Trains offers many freight car types, paint schemes, and layout instruction booklets. Atlas’s mission is to offer many lines of high quality model railroad products. View Double Play Hobby Consignments’ inventory of their products here.
