Thread: A query - Anyone modeled Tyco's fictional color schemes?

    Default A query - Anyone modeled Tyco's fictional color schemes?

    I was just wondering if anyones tried modelling the fictional color schemes used by Tyco on their model train sets, like the 'Silver Streak' (Unrelated to the Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor Film.), 'Golden Eagle' and 'Rocky Mountain Lines'. All I think deserve preservation, just as much as their real world counterparts.
