This is the description for TYCO Trains.
A popular and well-remembered entry in TYCO offerings is the Chattanooga Choo-Choo product line. It is first found in the company’s 1975-76 catalog. TYCO designated Chattanooga-dressed pieces with a -15 suffix on the stock number and both the steam engine and caboose are listed as separately available items, in addition to the train set beginning in 1975.
Introduced in 1972-73, this was one of three 62-foot long box cars in the TYCO line. Oddly, TYCO only offered this car in two roadnames, both of which were fairly prototypical!
TYCO’s 1976 catalog is the 50th Anniversary edition for the company. The TYCO name does not actually date back to 1926, but refers to the formation of Mantua Metal Products.
TYCO’s late 1970s collection of colorful 50-foot plug door boxcar models featuring DC Comics favorites.
