A while back I posted here that I had discovered that some of the K Line cars were REALLY nice. At that time I mentioned that I had always thought that K Line stuff was very "entry level", but had found that some of their stuff was at the same level as the better Lionel or Atlas offerings. I've since purchased a couple of the die cast 2 bay hoppers (both came in the yellow and black boxes) and they are beautiful...and heavy!
Anyway, while looking at eBay I see that there are similarly designed boxes that are either in black and red, or black with blue colors. My question here is: do these 3 different colored boxes represent different levels of detail?
Also, they had what they called a "Classics" line. These appear to have come in a black box with gold stripes; kinda reminds me of Weaver boxes. Were these cars typically more detailed then their other offerings?
As always, thanks in advance!
