Click above image to launch Photo Album

Take a gander at the beginnings of our photo album of Tyco. More details will follow next week regarding the structure, content, purpose and requirements for the album. The intent is to be as inclusive of all members as possible with the goal of covering everything Tyco.

Loopy got me started on this with the 1950's catalogs.

Hauled this one off the thrift store pegs last week, what a find, only $5, a Walthers Train Line engine, retails over $70 new. Wheels were totally dirty, and contacts to wheels weren't even touching, but a bit of time with the Dremel wire wheel brush and some pliers, and it's running like a champ again! Dual flywheels, very nice near mint condition, it runs smoothly and silently now ( just silent before ). I've been hoping to one day see some trains at the thrift store, this one and the JOTW post were both picked up together. Not sure I'll get that lucky again anytime soon, especially such a nice unit as the Walthers for $5, but will take my good luck where I can!

Picked this one up on Wed. at the Railhead.
Hobbytown RS-3.
I had to do a little tweak on the drive truck, as the base plate was slightly bowed.
This made the gears slip apart enough to spin free.
I put a bit of shim stock in, and good to go.
Still need to clean up a little more flash on the railings, etc.
I'd like to find a front power truck kit for it.
Note the teeny wheels!
