Re: CG Gons

Mantua became TYCO. IIRC, the TYCO name was derived from the name of
Mantua's owner. It became part of a large conglomerate and then spun off
as Mantua again. Mantua's early cars were sheet metal with paper
overlays and all metal trucks. Later cars were plastic with metal
underframes and metal trucks with plastic wheels. TYCO cars had plastic
underframes and plastic trucks.

Help, guys. I need a large number of CG 9 and 11 panel gons;
makes a kit, but at $30.00 a pop I can't get many. At one point, TYCO
made some suitable gons. Where can I find some? I rarely get to train
shows, and need to find a suitable retailer. Thanks, Tom Holley
Model power bought Mantua tooling. I think Mantua also had the Tyco
tooling. Check with Model Power
Thank you

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
