Growing up in the '70s, I was lucky to have been the right age to enjoy
the many companies that entered and in many cases quickly exited the HO-scale trains market. My train layout in those
days was packed with offerings from AHM, Athearn, Atlas, Bachmann, Cox, Like-Like, Lionel-HO, Pemco, Revell and
of course TYCO...and today decades later I still enjoy a look through those company's old catalogs.
In 2000, I noticed that there was no site devoted to TYCO's line of trains
and I was surprised and thought such a site would be enjoyed by many. Today, nearly seven years later, the TYCO site
is one of many I maintain and continually expand and enhance. My sites received thousands of visitors each day, proving
that there are a great many other folks out there with an interest in older ready-to-run trains.
Thanks for visiting the COX Model Trains Resource and stop by again in the near future, there's
always something new to see!
Pictured above is this site's author back in the fall of 1970, standing on the Gulf Mobile & Ohio's line between
St. Louis and Kansas City. I grew up in Jerseyville, Illinois and the GM&O was my hometown railroad and remains
a favorite of mine to this day.
