Guys:

I've been chatting with an EvilBay seller goes by MrTyco. He has a rather unusual item in his Tyco collection, the, well you'll see:



and yes they are the sign letters from Tyco HQ, which he aquired when they shut down!

mrtyco is the fellow that scored the big handrail auction about a month ago. I wonder what else does he knows about the Tyco business ? Is he a member of this forum? He may be the guy with the PRR ALCO 430.

Hand rails? Do you think he'd have a set for a Super 630?

oooh shiny. Although I can't but wonder, where's my disco ball? [:P]

I've always wondered if the first owners actually have to buy that stuff, or if they just grab it out of the dumpster? Cause you know you couldn't afford those now.

That would be none other than Mr. Anatov Vasiliev, in sunny Vineland, NJ.

He's the Red Box King in these parts.

Check out that Cuda...peeking from the garage. I'd have THAT over a gold Tyco sign anyday, LOL.

He is a stand-up, GREAT guy, who collects and sells on and off eBay. I've known him for over 10 years.

Hope everyone is well. It's Hotter 'n...well, y'all know how hot it gets in Texas. [:D]

That's just awesome. I guess whoever has the sign can definately carry the moniker of MrTyco. What a prize!

Wonder if someone is looking to sell those.
