Growing up in the 1970s, 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, 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 and stop by again in the near future, there's always something new to see!
Why go to Disneyland, when there's places like Walthers
to visit?!? Here I am riding on my mom's shoulders at the original Walthers' home offices in Milwaukee in 1968.
