Operating Hopper Sets
The coming HO Collector will continue our coverage of Revell’s entry into the model train market, exploring the development of the Operating Hopper Set (with operating hopper car designed to drop a live load into the storage bunker below). This was one of HO’s first operating accessories and is an important release for collectors.
Triple-Dome 62-foot Tank Cars
A collector favorite… HO-scale first saw a plastic model of a 62-foot tank car in the early 1970s. Did this model have a prototype? TYCO introduced this triple dome 62-foot tank car and other versions followed from several sources. Tony Lucio will look at the models and note the variations in this HO Collector article.
