    So the other day, I got these in the mail, a TYCO 4-6-0, a combine and two coaches. The loco runs like a dream...takes me back to 1972...

    That's what this hobby is all about. Fun! I think we lose sight of that when we gawk over and rivet count high-priced ready to run models...

    BTW, those are great models, Paul. I still intend to get a TYCO 10 wheeler, some day. My HO stuff is currently stored in deference to my usual N scale.

    Great classic piece. I got to looking up some of the old Tyco adverts:
    Who can forget the King Coal Set?


    And the little known Tyco Pickle Set. I don't believe it was ever
    cataloged:

    Are Tycos essentially from the Mantua kits?

    I got my eye on several similar locos.

    And that Pickle video was wonderful.
