Larry Gibbs presents the HO-scale version of General Motors’ Aerotrain made by Varney in the late 1950s. Tony Lucio examines TYCO’s Talgo Train from the same era. These sleek and futuristic attempts at breathing new life into the U.S. rail passenger business saw short careers, but ultimately enjoyed longevity in the hobby. All this and more in the 4th Quarter 2018 issue of HO Collector!
As in all life matters, planning ahead makes a big difference to any outcome. Too often our heirs have no concept of our collections. While we are happily accumulating all the various bits and pieces involved in the pursuit of the hobby it makes sense to take a few moments to document our holdings.
Easily one of the most iconic models produced by Varney or any other hobby company in the 1950s was General Motors futuristic Aerotrain. Larry Gibbs returns to HO Collector with his second feature article and presents the history of Varney’s Aerotrain model for the 4th Quarter 2018 cover story.
