    Most European 0 networks are running DC and of course we would like to run US equipment on our networks.
    Many thanks for those who answered me on running LIONEL locomotives on an AC network: In fact you can, although you have to make some simple modifications like stoppping the whitle and so on.
    Now I have the same question for other US Electrical Train manufacturers.
    What's the status with MTH, K line, Atlas and others?
    many thanks if you can answer

    I think that any US 3-rail train is compatible with Lionel. (Unless you get the command control versions)
    Lionel did make a DC line for a few years, about 20 years ago.
