Hi All, I am trying to put together a PRR heavyweight train using Atlas cars and it seems that Atlas only made combine/RPO, Pullman, diner, and observation cars. I can't believe they didn't produce a coach, The only Pullman I've found is the "James Logan". Did they make any others? Your comments appreciated. Regards, Dave L.
I've since discovered a full baggage car, too, but not Atlas but Rivarossi. Anyone know source that lists/shows all cars in the series? Regards, Dave L.

I have some of the Lima coaches. I still find it hard to believe they never made a coach and only Pullmans. Oh well. Thanks, Dave L.
Well, I just found some Rivarossi coaches on E-bay, although lettered for Union Pacific. I guess Atlas never included them in their PRR series. My search did not turn up any coaches in PRR, but now I know there are coaches. I wonder where the dies are for all these cars. Still in Con-Cor hands??? Dave L.

I just found a photo of a Rivarossi coach, but I think Atlas never offered the full baggage or coach. The Rivarossi car was lettered Union Pacific. I can't find out if Rivarossi offered the cars in PRR. Anyone know? Thanks, Dave L.
I managed to find the observation, Pullman (James Logan), and diner today at a train show. I have five of the six types. Still looking for those coaches! Regards, Dave
Found two in Union Pacific, and one in Southern Pacific. If not already doing it, you'll need to search for "Con Cor" or "Rivarossi" though (I found mine in a standing "Rivarossi heavyweight coach N" search).
