Howdy Geoff, my ops buddy has a pair of Athearn GP9's which are r/c'ed. He has the units coupled together (mu'ed) one has the board & battery (3 cell 1800 MAH Li Po) inside the dummy unit and power to the powered unit is just 2 wires. It depends upon which system you use (he uses a KYOSHO r/c car board) the equipment pretty much takes up the space in the dummy. The tractive effort is pretty much the same as it would be using a dummy GP9 hauling a train of 12-15 cars. I suppose that an Atlas unit would offer the same space inside the hood.
I hope this helps.

Woodie
