Im currently looking for a set of K-Line Reading Passenger Cars. preferrably either 18" or 21"
I don't believe K-line ever produced these as 21" cars. They appear as 18" cars in the 2006 Vol 2 catalogue as one 4 pack and two 2 packs.
K-4681D 3006 Obs, 31186 Diner, 32015 Coach, 31562 Baggage
K-4681E 32002 Grill, 32060 Coach
K-4681F 30593 Combine, 32050 Wall Street Club
They are all difficult to find, but I looked for 9 years before I found the club car.
It's best to consider upgrading them to LEDs, because they have high current draw, flicker a lot, and had poor quality control on the wiring. I found dead shorts, disconnected wiring, and bad rollers. Having said that, they are magnificent to see running behind the matching K-line F units; especially after I got a smoking B unit from bluelinec4 (Ben).
Next up they go for a Ramble behind the new Reading T1.
There is a guy who specializes in K line passenger trains; he claims to have a room full of boxes he can't even access. I'll try to contact him and put him onto this thread.
great information and Thank you, I would really appreciate it.
I may have the ones your are looking for under my layout in the eBay sectioned off area, stuff for future sale. I will take a look see and check tomorrow.
If John doesn't find the set, look in your email for information on another source. I have a message to him on your request. One diner car is available now.
Check your email.
Hey COULSTONR , I would be interested to learn what you were able to come up with . Please keep us posted . Jim
After Lionel came out with their T-1 in the late 80s K-line came out with a five car set of their heavyweight cars. Sold my set many years ago. It was however a nice looking train.
hey everyone, just wanted to give an update. I should have clarified, I am looking for the streamlined cars. Trying to find a 4 car set and maybe one of the add ons. John, I would love to know if you have them available. I appreciate everyones efforts
