The RS-1 was introduced by ALCO in March of 1941 with the delivery of the first of two units to the Rock Island.

Combining the accessibility of a switching locomotive and the higher-speed tracking of a road unit, the RS-1 started a revolution in locomotive design that was soon embraced by all of the major diesel-electric builders.

Despite ALCO's own introduction of higher horsepower roadswitchers, the 1,000 h.p. RS-1 had a production span of 19 years (1941-1960) with 623 units.

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 RS-1 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 RS-1) 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.)
