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.

The Tyco name was used when Mr. Tyler wanted to make some of his line RTR. The RTR cars were sold under the Tyco name which was TY(ler) CO(mpany).
