  1. HO Scale
    Hello all, I recently found a GIJoe Tyco Plymouth switcher. It runs alright, but after comparing it to my other three locos, it's actually huge. It looks almost bigger than 1/60. But runs on the normal ho track. The GiJoe cars I came with are normal looking. Do any of you guys know why it's so...

    I was really delighted to catch hold of this Tyco set. It had been five years of fruitless hunting on feeBay, Gum Tree AU, cold calling various hobby stores in Australia. It survived the 10,000 mile journey by mail, has the Gawd-Awful PT motor, and after a few brief stutters, sprang into life...

  6. HO Scale
    Hey everyone! I inherited some Tyco HO and I want to sell them to someone who will really love them and use them. As buyers, is it preferred to purchase them from someone like me if the train cars are still in their boxes (the boxes are discolored and damaged) OR should I write the name of the...

  10. HO Scale
    I recently acquired this: Sure, even though it's a Tyco product, it's very well-detailed! However, it has a bit of difficulty running. It looks like it wants to run, but struggles. The motor in the tender car makes kind of a squealing sound when I try moving it. I did put a little model...

  12. HO Scale
    I believe this came from the 70's. All wheel worm gear drive with a center motor. The wipers are outside the wheels. Works like a champ. Two weights at each end and two screws hold the motor to the frame at the bottom.

    I too am looking to sell my old Tyco train set (HO scale brown box) that I haven't set up in a long time. This is a set from my childhood so it was played with. Most items are in good condition, but there are some small things that are broken. I can send representative photos of pieces (cars...
  16. HO Scale
    I just won this engine on EBay. Does anyone know much about it? Does it have smoke? How hard is it to convert to KDee couplers? Will it turn without derailing on a 15 degree radius piece of track? (My Bachmann 2-6-2 and 4-4-0 make it no issue. Tight corner to climb one hill.) Also how...
