    I'm thinking about buying a Kusan K-Series Locomotive (Southern). I can get it for under $20, and I want to run it on my Lionel o27 gauge track. The seller says it works only on 2-rail tracks. I'm wondering if I can use it on my 3-rail Lionel tracks?

    I'm also wondering if this 40-year-old engine will need anything to run. I only have newer engines (5 yrs max). Does this need anything to work?

    I am not an expert on this train but I know they did make trains that could run on both 2 and 3 rail something like the way MTH does. Dave Farquhar should know more I think he wrote about AMT a few years ago.

    If I'm correct the BEEP's blood line is from AMT too.
