Katsumi / KTM Electric Locomotives

Katsumi, also known as KTM, made these O-scale electric locomotives in Japan during the 1960's. Though equipped with scale wheel flanges, I have successfully operated them on both Lionel FasTrack and tubular track. All locomotives below have a manual reverse lever and directional lighting. KTM also included electric locomotives in Model Railroad Sets.

At this Wikipedia link is the Japan Railways electric locomotive numbering and classification system, which corresponds to the numbers on the engines below.
