50th Anniversary Box Car

TYCO's 1976 catalog is the 50th Anniversary edition for the company.  The TYCO name does not actually date back to 1926, but the formation of Mantua Metal Products is 1926.  The car was cataloged only in 1976 and markings refer to TYCO only and not Mantua.  The 50th Anniversary Box Car carries a unique number separate from other examples of the 50' Plug Door Box Car model.  TYCO often would use the same base model and describe it differently to expand and enhance the rolling stock offerings.  The Special Edition ad seen above was featured in a November 1976 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine.
