A certain Robb fellow pointed out quite a while ago that the closest proto to the N Scale Atlas GP38 HH are the units 1st delivered to the N&W (later units are less close to the Atlas model). Oddly enough, the 1st units N&W received are not 4100-4110 as you might expect.

Anyway, some of us have been bugging Atlas to do N&W for a while, and I think Cory took a particular interest in the Skunk scheme. So I think well finally see the 13D maybe in the next run.
