All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
Inheriting a surplus of inventory when they bought Aurora in 1971, Nabisco made an effort to reduce their stock in 1973 by making a special employee offer. They recycled the "bored kid" from the December 1968 Boys' Life advertisement to create a new promo piece. Evidently the sets were all Penn Central, in spite of the photo.
Note how they recycled their Model Motoring boxes to ship the sets in pairs. Also note the company name: Aurora Products instead of Aurora Plastics (Nabisco renamed the company when they bought it).
With thanks to Bob Williams.
