The site that started it all. Launched in the summer of 2000, The TYCO HO-Scale Trains Resource focuses its attention on
the Brown Box Era of TYCO train offerings.
TYCO produced HO-scale model trains for a very long time, beginning in the 1950s and continuing until 1993. In order to showcase
TYCO's train lines in a manageable way, they are broken into different eras. TYCO's Brown Box Era begins with the Tyler family's
sale of the line to Consolidated Foods in the early 1970s. TYCO at this time adopts the familiar black logo with the TY and
CO letters connected. The Brown Box Era concludes with the demise of the TYCO train line in the early 1990s.
