All About Postage Stamp Trains
Up until recently, I was only aware of a single style of Aurora's bus system set, the one with the goofy orange illustration of a bus pacing a train on the box lid, which was made in the US. But then, late one night, I saw something I'd never seen before:
It's obviously pretty beat-up, but it's also immediately recognizable as having been made by Faller, based on their #401 set. Did this version precede the others? Was it available only in certain geographic areas? Yet more unanswered questions.
Sets with transformers later carried a warning label below the Aurora logo.
Sets were packed in Styrofoam nests, with most accessories tucked loosely under the curved track. Mint sets are wrapped in cellophane.
Note: This is an AC-powered product, which evidently caused some issues with users who attempted to power it with DC. Polk's Model-Craft Hobbies of Jersey City made an offer to help rectify this problem (no pun intended).
