1961 Centennial Sets

Among the many 1960s favorites for collectors are TYCO’s 1961-issued Civil War train sets. The back of TYCO’s 1961 product catalog includes a presentation for two special train sets. Marking the 100th Anniversary of America’s Civil War, TYCO produced two Centennial-series sets. One was the Blue Train – Centennial and the other the Gray Train – Centennial. Each featured similar components and retailed for $34.98. The sets appeared in TYCO’s 1961 and 1962 annual catalogs.  Read about them and see images!
