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!

Illinois in October 1971.
