Based on the latest catalog, it appears Lionel is dropping the old style AF track they inherited from K-Line in favor of 'S' FasTrack. Does anyone know if someone else will be getting the tooling for the AF/K-Line track sections? Or is it completely gone, leaving used track at the train show the only source now??

Check with Lionel before you say that. They have omitted O gauge tubular track from the catalog a few times, but every time they say that they are still making it when asked.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Yeah. You should verify, but that's where I heard it.

Well, this is the response I got from Lionel:

LenTo our knowledge we are still producing the tubular track, they haven't told us anything different.Thank you,Talk to Us


The problem is, the old style track isn't on the 'pre-order' buy the LHS got from the distributor. Guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.

Rusty,

 

Almost everything manufactured in the last 5 years is in the product finder, whether it's still in production or not. The 'Online Store' is a better indicator of current production item availability and the old style AF track is not listed there.

Talked with Doug Peck at York today and he said no one currently has the rights to make the old style track.  It seems that unless Kader decides to use the old tooling themselves or someone else develops new tools we probably won't see that style of track again.
