1st QUARTER 2018: This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the ill-fated Penn Central. What HO-scale model trains were produced when the railroad was alive and active between 1968 and 1976? We also continue our series on Tyco “Preprods,” and a look at the early Mantua-TYCO streetcar. We explore the heritage of early brass imports with Overland Models’ GP40X, while noted hobby historian Dle Smith presents the history of Gilbert’s six-axle Alco DL-600/RSD-7 diesel locomotive model from the mid-1950s. All this and more in the 1st Quarter 2018 issue of HO Collector!
Introduced for the 1971 holiday season, Cox moved into the HO-scale electric train market with a series of train sets and additional items. Tony Cook gives an overview of Cox Trains’ time in the HO-scale train market in the 2nd Quarter 2018 HO Collector.
