Comet II Commuter Cars - Prototype Background
The Comet II commuter pasenger cars were first introduced by Bombardier in 1980-81. The cars had their genesis in the earlier Comet commuter cars which were built for the Erie Lackawanna and New Jersey DOT.

The cars have gained great acceptance with many transit agencies including NJ Transit, MBTA, SEPTA, Metro-North and others. Millions of commuters ride these cars everyday to work in the population centers of NY, Philadephia and Boston.

Differing from the long-distance Horizon cars, the Comet II coaches have tubular style diaphragms and ride on inboard-bearing trucks. Atlas O will offer the Comet II cars in both coach and cab control coach versions, so that for the first time, true push-pull operation can be realistically duplicated in O gauge.
