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.
