Tektronix certainly knew there were TO-92 and TO-18 transistors, so
when they used a TO-39 part, it was generally because they needed the
extra power capability.
In this particular case, the original 2N5401 part was in TO-92, and
they went to the trouble of having a custom part made in TO-39, so
it's even more likely that there was a good reason for it.
P.S. You are using a zero as the second character in TO, when it
should be letter O. TO = transistor outline
