Atlas N Code 55 turnouts...

Can someone clue me into the code behind the
turnout numbers? Is this a standard notation or is
it specific to Atlas?

"Code" = height of the rail quoted in thousandths of an inch.
i.e. code 55 = .055" code 80 = .080" code 100 = .100"

As for the #5 or #7, it is a measurement of how far the diverging rail is angled away from the straight rail, as in 1' of deflection for every 5' of linear distance. (which is a #5).
