I was looking at some Atlas locos and was wondering if anyone had problems running N scale Atlas locos on EZ-track.

Atlas makes very good quality engines that should run on EZ track with no problems.  Most brands are compatible.

The short answer is yes, the Atlas locos run just fine on Bachmann EZ track.

With a quick check with calipers, the EZ track is code 80.
All manufactures “N scale” locomotives will run on all other manufacturers “N gauge” track.
The few exceptions being with older manufacturers’ wheel flange depth not being NMRA compliant.

EZ track is generally OK.

I have seen individual pieces of roadbed attached track with a slight horizontal bow to it from MT, Kato, Like-like, Atlas, and yes, Bachmann too.

This maybe from improper cooling time in the mold during the manufacturing process.
It maybe also an accepted tolerance in the quality control process.
Either way the trains really don’t seem to mind.
Just an easy little bump in the track.

I haven’t seen it with any brand so excessive it will cause uncoupling or derailing.
