Katsumi / KTM Electrics

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