K2412-2702   CSX GP38-2 Diesel w/RailSounds & TMCC CSX
    K-LINE Collector's Club Member Exclusive. $250.00 ea.    

On November 1, 1980, the merger of Chessie System Inc. and Seaboard Coast Line Industries Inc. (SCLI) created what was then the largest rail network in the United States. As equal partners they formed a new holding company, CSX Corporation, with headquarters in Richmond, Virginia. The initials represented the two companies, Chessie and Seaboard, while the “X” was intended to refer to the merger as “much more” than just two railroads. In addition to rail systems, the newly formed corporation had interests in real estate, oil and gas, aviation, resort hotels, cable TV, publishing, trucking, pipelines, ships and timber.

Under CSX, the Chessie and Seaboard rail units brought together 17 separate railroad companies linking the entire eastern coast and the Midwest with nearly 28,000 miles of track. The companies operated as separate entities until July 1, 1986, when all Chessie and Seaboard operations were fully merged to create CSX Transportation (CSXT).

K-LINE’s O Scale CSX GP38-2 Diesel Engine features the current CSXT paint scheme, reproduced down to the last detail. The realistically detailed plain-line styled hood unit even includes the U.S. flag added to the cab by CSX during the Desert Storm War in 1991. On the line, this 2,000 hp “general purpose” diesel-electric road-switcher was equipped with a 645 engine for use in train yards, industrial switching and passenger-terminal work. The K-LINE “Geep” features dual, vertical drive motors with brass flywheels, and Lionel RailSounds digital sound and TrainMaster Command Control.

Does anyone have the paperwork that came with the K2412-2702? I bought a new in box, but it has no paperwork. I'll pay for a copy. Thanks, Glenn
