Operating Ore Dump Set with Nite Glow
(1980 and 1981)
TYCO catalogs its Ore Dump Car Set (No.916) for two years
in 1980 and 1981. Similar to the other offerings of this type, the Ore Dump Car is the same hand powered hopper car
this time painted black and lettered in white for Pennsylvania Railroad. The ore included is glow-in-the-dark Nite-Glow
rock. Both catalogs describe this item as working by "remote control," however it is not an electrical accessory and
you had to use your fingers to manually raise the hopper bin to dump the ore.
