One of the problems you're going to encounter with Atlas N scale engines is 
that the handrails don't hold paint very well.  I think they're delrin 
plastic, which allows them to be thinner, and less stiff &  brittle.  I've 
had a couple in the past, and the paint flakes off rather easily.  I can't 
tell you if there's a solution by using specific paint or primer.  You may 
want to pose the question to an N scale list.
n_scale -AT- onelist.com is a good one.  I don't know if there's a list for 
painting, there is one for decals now.
