Hello Group,

I don’t post here often, but thought you all might enjoy this short video that was posted over on the Atlas Rescue Forum. It is a brief tour of the product archives at Atlas Company done by product reviewer JLWII2000.

Thanks, Mark J.

Cool video but that didn't look like "Everything Ever" produced.. (i.e. back to A1G stuff..)

Looked like everything produced since the late 1990s /early 2000s..

Would have been better as a museum style setup.. but I get that it is a private archive.

While an interesting look, it's just a warehouse.
ReallY? You didn't expect them to retain 'sample' stock?

I liked seeing how large the O boxes are, someone is doing o 2 rail basement filler near by and I’m not going to lie the heft is nice   :drool: I couldn’t afford more than a single industry shelf however  :facepalm: not going to lie the video was sort of underwhelming, especially with a lego fan video my gf showed me recently of their vault.. the viewers went row by row picking some of their favorite sets over time to briefly pull out... this just seemed like stocked shelves in comparison.  :|

> ...underwhelming...

Yeah, that was my reaction, too. Like Ron and Ian said, I was waiting for the discovery of the stash of A1G gems, with the "Oh, wow! Would you believe that was from 50 years ago?"

No... uh... wait. I'm confusing that with a stack of stuff in my train room. :facepalm:

So the wife was looking for something in the garage and she opened up the cabinet that has my excess
accumulation of n-scale. Mostly empty boxes of the cars and locos that are in my train boxes and display cases.
Still it's a fairly large cabinet and it's pretty full.
"You have a lot of crap here."
"No Honey, it's my archive." she responds with eye roll.

Archivist adds a certain air of dignity.

Joy refers to the stockpile as "the museum"

I think they could have jazzed up the video more. "Show me some hidden gems"

I'm going to bet there is a stock of A1G and A2G equipment. Why not right? Maybe samples of aborted projects? I hear the ghost of Front Runners past whispering.
