All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
Ostensibly released by C.J. Bubla, this Special Set was packed in a yellow flat box with either original foam trays or one of two yellow vacu-formed trays. Although the order sheet specifies Santa Fe as the road name, this set has also been sold with Penn Central and Baltimore & Ohio locos, so the choice of road name may have been catch-as-catch-can. Likewise the rolling stock assortment varied depending on the packaging. MSRP was $27.50; Woolworth was selling them for $19.97.
Contents dependent on packaging options.
This set has appeared in three packaging arrangements. One features the original foam trays of the standard train sets, with extremely minimal labeling; there are no labels on the ends of this box.
The other two packaging styles have yellow vacu-formed trays molded to accept the F9-A packed in either a normal cardboard box, or in a clear plastic "jewel case."
