All About Postage Stamp Trains
In contrast to their earlier counterparts, these sets were not offered with a choice of road name, and had no flat car. Presumably the caboose was chosen at random from the road name pool, which includes some roads in addition to the original "standard four" of Union Pacific, Santa Fe, Pennsylvania and Baltimore & Ohio. The sets were released in bookshelf boxes as well as both styles of flat boxes.

Black-and-yellow flat boxes:
This curious outlier has no cover sheet on the right tray. Also note that the gondola was substituted with a flat car. Given the set is still sealed in cellophane, this would seem to have been a slip-up in Aurora's packing department.
