About The Author

Growing up in the 1970s, I was lucky to have been the right age to enjoy the many companies that entered and in many cases quickly exited the HO-scale trains market.  That's me in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado in May 1973.
My train layout in those days was packed with offerings from AHM, Athearn, Atlas, Bachmann, Cox, Like-Like, Lionel-HO, Pemco, Revell and of course TYCO...and today decades later I still enjoy a look through those company's old catalogs. 
In 2000, I noticed that there was no site devoted to TYCO's line of trains and I was surprised and thought such a site would be enjoyed by many. 
The original TYCO site, focusing on its 1970s and newer Brown Box offerings, is one of many I maintain and continually expand and enhance.  This site featuring TYCO's 1960s Red Box model trains compliments the original TYCO Resource and illustrates and details a very exciting time in the company's history.
My sites received thousands of visitors each day, proving that there are a great many other folks out there with an interest in older ready-to-run trains.  Thanks for visiting and stop by again in the near future, there's always something new to see!
