The 1982 Catalog
is the last great year for TYCO's train line. For example, 1982 has six new roadnames among the Diesel Locomotive line
and seven new roadnames among Steam Engines. Diesel Locomotive offerings total 19 different items. The next year, 1983, sees
that drop to 12 items that remain the same through 1986. The 1982 Catalog is also the last occasion that HO-scale trains kick
off the catalog offerings and hence begin to drop in priority and importance.
