The old Atlas O "Industrial Rail" 4-4-2 from what I've read is 1:64 or darn close to it. Even a "scaler" or two have converted one.
As far as the K-Line ex-Marx freight cars go, they are more or less 1:64. IMO they fall into "eye of the beholder" territory. I had considered trying to covert some to scale, but I found the detail too crude (cruder than the Lionel "Scout" boxcar) to make the effort.
K-Line was going to produce some freight sets using a modified ex-Marx 333 Pacific, but K-Line went under before that could happen. They would have been interesting.
Several S-Fest cars were produced using the K-Line cars.
Yea, I went investigating the scale of the semi-scale locomotives thinking some of the boilers might be conversion worthy - they produced several good models in O-27 and O scale - the were just underpowered. The semi-scale ones tend to sell for cheap cause few people want semi-scale locos... But even though they are small for O-27, they are still too large. I was mainly investigating the long-term posibility of somehow building a Baldwin mountain (knowing even if a Mountain were to ever be released, it'd be a Mohawk). ATSF and SLSF both had quite a few Mountains.
The Atlas loco looks a little 1:29 ish to me. Fine with the cars - but out of scale with the track.
