Tyco turbo train

Post by styckx »

Didn't want to insult the model railway section with this as it's a bit ridiculous. :lol:

Not sure if these ever made it over to the UK but this was a toy train set Tyco (mass producers of toy junk in the 80s) put out in the 80s.. It's the most silly thing you'll ever see. Just thought I'd share it. :)

Great idea for HS2.

Instead of demolishing houses they could jump over them.

They did.

I remember having one in 1990-something.

Never actually assembled it :lol:
