TCA McCoy Car

I said I would post some of my McCoy stuff. This is a TCA car and graphics don't get much better than this. This is a really nice car and it definitely stands out in a line of boxcars. I actually wish I had bought 5 or 6 of these to make a "Lobster Train". Ok, there's a coal train, the Pocahontas, etc. Why can't there be a Lobster Express?

Please contribute your favorite McCoy pics! I have some other nice McCoy items I will share well.

Any thoughts on McCoy trucks?

I certainly prefer the "open" trucks that you picture rather than the clunky earlier ones. Many McCoy products are quite charming indeed -- SF Cablecar, Handcar, Steamers... I can't say I like their Electrics, however. But it must have been wonderful to take a tour of their factory. I remember seeing Mrs. McCoy at York and at Conventions in years gone by -- always smiling, laughing, really enjoying her sales/PR role.
