About The Author

 
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 Life-Like Model Trains Resource and stop by again in the near future, there's always something new to see!
