K-Line Electric Trains provides quality locomotives and rolling stock to model train collectors. Additionally, K-Line has produced many high caliber 1:48 through 1:43.5 scale model buildings which will make the prefect addition to your layout. Originally marketed as a value alternative to other O gauge options on the market, the K-Line quickly grew into a favorite of many collectors, who were impressed by the electric train maker's high quality and well crafted offerings. K-Line has also created a line of S gauge, 1:64 scale, model trains. Through out the 1980's and 1990's, K-Line provided the model railroader with an array of options to add to thier collections. Sometimes the competition between manufactures of different brands of O gauge trains would get animated and serious collectors would debate the different merits of each one. Like serious hobbyist will do, they made compelling arguments for thier favorite brands. And I remember growing up and listening to these conversations while searching for new item for my layout, hoping that I had saved enough of my allowance to afford it. Sadly these debates are behind us, as K-Line is no longer in production. The last of K-Line offerings were folded in Lionel's catalog in 2010.
