Brown Box Era HO-Scale Trains
Power Packs

TYCO offered a variety of Power Packs during the run of The Brown Box Era.  Train sets came with the standard 1-amp Tyco-Pak (#899) throughout the 1970s and into the early '80s.  In 1982, TYCO introduces a new 1-amp Tyco-Pak (#895) that is black in color with a blue throttle.  The Tyco-Pak (#895) becomes standard in train sets from 1982 through the end of TYCO's train line offerings.  After 1983, the 1-amp Tyco-Pak (#895) remains as the only power pack listed as a separate accessory in product catalogs.
Power Packs were sold by themselves in the TYCO product line and included simple models to power a single train operation to more advance units capable of controlling two trains at once.
A note to those attempting to make a train set function, it is not necessary to use a TYCO Power Pack with TYCO trains.  One could utilize any standard model train hobby DC transformer to operate a TYCO train engine.
