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! The car disappears after the 1975-76 catalog, however like many TYCO
items, thism model remained available on dealer shelves for sometime. Letter designations following the model number, 356,
arrive in the 1975-76 catalog for both names. For example, adding an "B" makes the 356-B the Soo Line car. The original retail
price given in the 1972-73 catalog is $3.50, the price drops to $2.50 in 1975-76 listings.
The model weighs 4.45 ounces and measures 62 scale feet to the ends of the shell. The model stands 17 scale feet over the
rails. The plug doors are each 10 scale feet wide.
