Here is something neat. TYCO was planning a Gold bullion transport train and one of the cars on the train was a Pinkerton Detective Agency car for added protection when transporting the Gold. More to follow..... (Note that I have gotten better with my backgrounds for photos. Far from professional but better than my first attempts.) Pictured with a few of my slot car toys.. an Aurora RR crossing and a thunderjet tuff ones Camaro.

I think TYCO's mis-spelling of the name PINKER-TINE on the s1de of the work car is to be used in conjunction with the Clemen-TINE theme of GOLD. That is purely a guess on my part.

The misspelling could have been intentional. The Pinkerton agency has been very overprotective of their name in the past and have sued for using it. They even sued the band Weezer over their album "Pinkerton." Just a thought...

An interesting variation of the boom tender car.

It went up for sale on ebay about 2 years ago now. I had the chance to bid and like an idiot I didn't for some reason that I don't even know.
