Can't Get Into Atlas' Website

Anyone else having trouble getting into the Atlas website?  All of my search engines just grind away for about three minutes then I get a runtime error.

They sent a notice about a limited sale on hard to find items yesterday - and they appear swamped...

Looks ok now though...

"Search engines"?  Why not go directly the their website?  No search engines.  I just visited https://shop.atlasrr.com/default.aspx and connected without problems.

Well, since I didn't have the URL at that moment, I used GOOGLE and got the runtime error, then went to MS EDGE and got the same result.  The link Pete provided worked fine.  I'm no "techie" so I have no idea why I had the issue in the first place.  Thanks Pete.

Was Peteski's link the same URL the search engines were giving?  If they had an old one cached, or one that went to another page, it might not work.

1) Websites sometimes go offline for upadates

2) Users sometimes mangle the URL of a website

3) Users sometimes have too many "blockers" on their systems that causes problems.

4) Users sometimes are the problem

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

When I go to my browser (Seamonkey which is based on Mozilla/Firefox code) and type in atlasrr.com, it automatically redirects me to https://shop.atlasrr.com/  I just tried it and it works. Maybe try that URL (without the default.aspx part).

So how do you find what they are offering once you open the site?

Depends on what you're looking for.  The favorite place for me are the Atlas Archives.  You can look up pretty much any locomotive/car announced in the 2000's.  Just go to http://www.atlasrr.com and the menu across the top choose "Production --> Archive".  Then on the page you go to see the menu across the top there and choose "N Scale" and the sub category you want.  There you will find listings of the various locomotives and cars Atlas has announced over the years.

If you want parts, then on the home page you look under the "N-Scale" (or whatever scale you want parts for) menu and there are options for both "Parts" and "Parts Diagrams".
