Those have been out of production for a long time. You may find one at a swap meet, or on e-bay, or one from someone who wants to part with it. I haven't seen one at a hobby shop in years! What you'll pay? Anyone's guess!

I believe Bowser also made a PRR Atlantic in HO scale, with a cast boiler of some sort.
 
Roundhouse used the same boiler casting on the PRR Atlantic 4-4-2 and PRR Consolidation 2-8-0
Bowser did the same thing, using their boiler on both the 4-4-2 and 2-8-0

Although the cast boilers are not perfectly accurate for either wheel arrangement, they are a very reasonable alternative to brass and you can dress them up to look very good.
