Trying to Figure out this Trains Data to try a rebuild of it. Tyco/Rivarrosi?
Posted by GothicTrains on Friday, May 26, 2023 4:03 PM

The Ho scale locomotive chassis has tyco fuel tanks, tyco stamps on the geared trucks but the motor says it is AHM Rivarrosi.  The motor is mounted on top of the chassis with a shaft leading to the gear box at the center.  The chassis is similar to a Rivarossi U25C but all manufactures stamps are saying its a Tyco.  The trucks are metal with a gear system like a Rivarrosi.  I need parts fro the front truck and can't find anything on the internet about it.  Can some one help?  I tried to insert a photo of the chassis but it did not work.

Need to look in a Model Railroader forum.  This is a 1:1 scale forum.

Sounds like you have the original version of the Tyco Super 630 (ALCO C-630).  It had a Rivarossi motor and driveline for a short time before they switched to the common Power-Torque drive.
