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.
