Found this at a swap show......only marking are "Tyco" and "Made in Hong Kong"

I'm assuming it's 50's vintage, maybe a "space ship control car" out of a set? No idea if the couplers are original or not......

My forte is European N scale.....but this caught my eye as something different.....

OK...re-reading that post.....I sound like someone trying to make a buck, let me restate....

I have never seen a Tyco like this, even searching to see what it's from came up with nothing....I don't even know what you'd call it.....

I'm NOT looking to make money off it.....as a matter of fact, if someone wants it I will send it for the cost I paid for it (nothing, he gave it to my son because he bought some other cars).....

I just think it's unique and different, and figured maybe someone here knew something about it.....

sorry for coming off the way I did in the first post....

DrenMadre;

From the doors and their associated hardware, It looks like a refrigerator car to me. With those trucks I guess it's supposed to be a European refrigerator car? That's my guess anyway. The photos below show an American refrigerator car. Notice the similar doors.

Tyco made a lot of toy-quality "not realistic, but I bet young boys will love it" stuff in the '60's. I had an "Army Rocket Command" set, with a missile car -- including a working, spring launched missile -- a radar / tracking car, and a command car. That looks somewhat like the command car, except that it had two axle trucks and hook horn couplers (and was olive drab with USArmy markings).
