    About to buy a new Loco for my O 3 rail layout. I'll probably go with a lionel product, but I'm very curious about K-line. Is the quality the same? The prices sure aren't. Any info appreciated! Thanks!

    I have very little experience with K-Line but have generally been impressed with the quality of the product. It's a good value for the money compared with the other manufacturers out there today. I'm a bit disappointed that they've tried to shift focus towards the high end of the market because they could totally own the low end, and I think if they were to focus on that they could expand the market, rather than fighting with Lionel and MTH for their piece of the ever-shrinking high-end pie.
