All About Postage Stamp Trains
4949: Train Power Pack

Aurora Postage Stamp Trains power packs came in tan with black lettering and black with white lettering; the tan packs came first, and nearly all bookshelf box sets had them. Evidently Canadian sets had an altogether different type of power pack (below right); curiously, it's labeled "Model No. 4949 HO hobby transformer."

Appearing in some of the very last train sets that Aurora released were power packs having a plastic top in gold or blue, with the lettering heat-stamped in white (below). Note the Aurora logo rendered as plain block text, a style adopted in the early 1970s. The same packs were often seen branded for Atlas, Minitrix and others.

All of these packs were made in USA by a third party.
