Road Names

Little Donkey sets are peculiar in that they were originally offered with a choice of road name, even though the locomotive itself had none; the road name was that of the caboose. The newer version had no road name choice.

Oddball Packaging

While digging for Postage Stamp sets one day, I came across the oddball at right. I do not suspect the image is bogus, so it creates a mystery: how did a set with the non-standard cover sheet on the left come into being? Was it possibly a prototype set? Aurora experimented with cover sheet colors at the outset, so that may be the only logical explanation.
