Lionel O tinplate track

Check for updates

Lionel tinplate track in regular O profile is probably the most popular track used on O-gauge layouts. The regular O series track has been in production in one form or another since ~1915. Track components in this style have been produced by a number of manufacturers, withe Lionel and K-Line the current most common. Tinplate track and components such as switches have the advantage that they are ready to go out of the box; very little or no additional assembly or wiring is required to assemble a layout.

The Lionel / K-Line track library contains all of the Lionel-type tinplate track. This includes manufacturers such as Lionel, K-Line, and Hirth Hobbies. We have also included the five components of T-Rail track from the 1930’s in this library for the collector and modeller in T-Rail.

The current v5 build number for the Lionel/K-Line O library is 4.50.040. If yours is earlier than this, go to our updates page to download and install the current version.

This track library contains a wizard for track laying automation.
