During TYCO's Brown Box Era (1971-1993), The 1890 Loco
and Tender (#233) appears in company catalogs from 1971 through the 1979 edition. The only roadname available for this
loco, from what is shown in catalogs, is Santa Fe.
In the 1971-72; 1972-73; and 1973-74 catalog, the 1890 Loco is
priced at $20 for the ready-to-run version. A kit version (#7706) is priced at $15.
For the 1974-75 catalog, TYCO
raises the price to $25. In 1975-76, the 1890 Loco is up to $27 for the fully constructed version and the kit is then priced
at $19. TYCO's 1976 catalog finds this steamer at $32, while the kit is no longer listed in the catalog. For 1977,
the price is $37.
The 1890 loco is also found in the 1978 catalog and one last time in the 1979 catalog, TYCO
does not provide price information those years.
