Brown Box Era HO-Scale Trains
Triple-Dome Tank Car
Pictured above is the first pair of Triple
Dome Tankers from the 1972-73 catalog. Unique this first year are the paint jobs on both cars. Later models feature different
paint schemes for each, see images below. Additionally, later models drop the ladder at the center dome.
Riding on triple trucks and boasting triple domes, this was the
longest tank car offered in the TYCO line. It is first found in the 1972-73 catalog and remains available into the 1980s.
Letter designations following the model number, 357, arrive in the 1975-76 catalog for each name. For example, adding an "C"
makes the 357-C the 'Exxon' car. The original retail price given in the 1972-73 catalog is $3.50.
