All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
Released in 1969 by Aurora Plastics of Canada Ltd., these sets came with either Canadian National or Canadian Pacific engine and caboose. It's unknown why they were both numbered 4707, or if customers even had a choice of what they got, since there's nothing printed on the outside of the box indicating the contents.
Packaging consisted of a yellow cardstock tray that held individually-boxed rolling stock and, curiously, pre-assembled lengths of curved track.
The set contained either a CN or CP F9A, boxcar, refrigerator car, hopper car, tank car and caboose. Track comprised a full circle plus four straight sections, with an older-style snap-in rerailer. Plus, a Canadian power pack and a Canadian service manual. Note the alternate lettering style of the Shell tank car. Photos courtesy of Bob Williams and Kal B.
