The fall of 1986 brings a Roco-made Alco S-2 switcher to the Atlas HO-scale diesel roster.  The initial roadnames included Baltimore & Ohio, Rio Grande, New York Central, Pennsylvania Railroad, Seaboard Air Line, Union Pacific, plus an undecorated example.  You'll find a review of the Atlas Alco S-2 in the Trade Topics section of the November 1986 issue of Model Railroader magazine.
The S-2 marked the first all-new model to come from Roco in Austria for the Atlas line, since the group of 1970s releases.  The S-2 followed a string of Alco releases under the Atlas banner that began with the RS-3 and included the RSD-4/5, RS-11, and Century 424 and Century 425 diesels.  Though these other Alcos were built by Kato in Japan for Atlas in the 1980s.

The S-2/S-4 is now an Atlas Classic series release.  To date, it is the only re-issue to not receive separately applied metal grab irons, which does date this offering somewhat in today's market.  You may click on the image above of the Central Vermont S-2 and you'll be taken to the Atlas site and there you can review the production runs from 2001 to the present.
