does anyone know where I can purchase traction tires for my K line 1295 4-6-6 engine? Is it the same wheel size as the Lionel 4-6-6 engine so possible source of the traction tires.

I believe they are the exact same engine with the exception of the electronics - Lionel got the tooling when K-Line wend out of business. So the Lionel ones should fit.
Allan, thank you for the information. I am contacting lionel to order the tires. On a side note when looking at the lionel manuel they included an extra pair with the engine so I looked in my K line box and did find a pair of the tires. I put them on and works great.
talked to lionel and they do not sell them but gave me the phone number for S&W parts supply. 518-280-5197 Bill had them so I ordered them for extras.
Do you have the part number for the tires?
I don't have it and Lionel does not have the parts list for the engine, but if you call them, just ask what the part number is for the traction tires on model 2031030 is. They should be able to find the part number so you can order some.
when i ordered them from S&W he didn't have parts number but i gave him the diameter of the wheel and he was able to send some that fit great. they come a bit smaller then the wheel and stretch to fit. they are reasonably priced so I got two sets .
